Actions have consequences: Al Gore got rich doing the opposite of what he claimed to want

Al’s promotion of ethanol wasn’t just horribly counterproductive because it is so inefficient and it increased the price of food.  It was evil because he did it for personal gain.

“One of the reasons I made that mistake is that I paid particular attention to the farmers in my home state of Tennessee, and I had a certain fondness for the farmers in the state of Iowa because I was about to run for president.”

via Gore: On second thought, I was just pandering to the farm vote on ethanol « Hot Air.

Follow the money, people.

  1. I can’t disagree about Al Gore, but I still maintain ethanol did not make the price of food go up.

    They don’t make ethanol from food grade corn.

    The fact is that now that ethanol production has decreased the price of food is going up to replace the revenue stream that has declined from ethanol.

    A lot of factors enter in to this, but keep watching prices at the grocery store. The revenue to cover increased production costs has to come from somewhere.
