I had to laugh reading that the pushing ethanol as a conservation tool can end up causing more pollution for the Chesapeake Bay, as chemical runoff from cornfields end up washing into the Bay.

It's not that I want to see the Bay polluted, nor am I opposed, per se, to measures that improve air quality. It's simply that politicians scared of being labeled anti-environment are acting like chickens without their heads, running from one supposedly 'green' measure to another, without a real analysis of the costs and benefits of the measures they are implementing.

What we need is a bit of sanity to this whole thing. But that isn't going to happen as long as the global warming alarmists keep foisting their religion on the rest of us.
