What’s worse than getting coal in your stocking? Having trouble with your engine-powered winter equipment, thanks to the ethanol mandates.
Environmentalists, farmers, conservatives and liberals may not always find common ground, but these unlikely allies do agree on one thing: the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) is broken — broken in many ways, for many people. The extent of the problem wasn’t apparent a decade ago, but now we can clearly see the unintended consequences of the RFS.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is standing behind a policy that would require a four-gallon minimum fuel purchase from pumps that dispense gasoline with 10 percent ethanol (E10) and 15 percent ethanol (E15) fuel from the same hose.
On August 25, 2016, the National Parks Service (NPS) is celebrating its 100th birthday – an incredible milestone marking a century of stewardship in our parks. But as NPS prepares to blow out the candles, we can’t help but imagine what we’d wish for if we were in their boots…
With the release of the 2017 renewable volume obligations (RVOs), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has demonstrated once again that it has not learned from its past errors.
Two Congressmen—an environmentalist from Vermont and a former oil man from Texas—are crossing party lines to take a stand and call for reform to the unworkable ethanol mandates.
Imagine a world where government ethanol mandates work as they are intended to—with high ethanol-blend fuels efficiently powering all cars, boats, motorcycles and every small engine imaginable.
As President Obama speaks out against climate change at the 21st session of the Conference of Parties, or COP21, his administration’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is doubling down on ethanol mandates, a supposedly environmental policy that actually raises emissions.
With Election Day only a year away, it’s more important than ever for you to speak up for the things you believe in. This can mean waiting to vote in the next election, or it can mean using your voice now.
This election season, with so many presidential candidates vying for our country’s highest office, it’s more important than ever to understand the federal policies that affect our daily lives.
Today, Lake Research Partners and Bellwether Research and Consulting released a new national poll sponsored by the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) that finds likely 2016 voters are deeply divided about the corn ethanol mandate, and have widespread and serious concerns about ethanol’s unintended consequences—including damage to engines, land conversion and food prices.
The EPA is hurting everyone by creating instability in the corn market, which impacts refiners, corn farmers, livestock producers and consumers together. The EPA’s favorite tactic, delaying the final rule for the 2014 RFS until sometime next year, is further proof that the policy is broken and the agency is no longer a good steward. It is time for Congress to take bipartisan action on the Renewable Fuel Standard instead.
