The EPA’s release of the proposed 2018 Renewable Volume Obligations for the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) shows that the government is taking a step in the right direction towards fixing the broken policy.
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…
Those who tout the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) as a “green” policy are onto something. The RFS is definitely green — unfortunately, it’s the kind of green that creates algal blooms that harm ecosystems and marine life.
16 million more acres is so large, it is almost unfathomable. But don’t worry – we’re here to put it into perspective for you.
Recent reports from CNN and the Washington Post show that corn crops may be increasing humidity in the Midwest due to the phenomenon of “corn sweat.”
Our recent analysis of data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture points to our worst fears: the ethanol mandate is a driving force in the radical transformation of the U.S. agricultural landscape in the years since the RFS was instituted.
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.
Sweet summertime is almost upon us - and more than ever, boaters are in search of ethanol-free fuel (E0) for their boats. Learn from two boating experts about the task of finding E0 to avoid the summertime sadness.
The latest post from the Environmental Working Group looks at reports and analyses to come to the conclusion corn ethanol is NOT a renewable fuel.
