An extensive report from the Environmental Protection Agency found that including ethanol into the U.S. gas supply is wreaking havoc on the atmosphere and soil.

In a study titled “Biofuels and the Environment: The Second Triennial Report to Congress,” the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) determined that ethanol derived from corn and soybeans is causing serious harm to the environment. Water, soil and air quality were all found to be adversely affected by biofuel mandates.

I love the fact that Trump now controls the EPA, and as damning as this report is, it leaves open the fact that more research needs to be done, as in "Peer Reviewed" papers, meaning, do not expect any real significant change anytime soon But change is afoot.
Anyone interested can read the full report here, but get a pot of coffee ready first, you'll need it, it's relatively dry, but if you love data as much as I do, it's a page-turner. :biggrin:
