Truth vs. EPA Regulation

Liberal-progressive regulatory impulses are presented as scientific fact, standing against private business greed. In far too many cases those regulatory impulses are based on a one-dimensional view that fails to assess the total social and economic costs involved.

Ethanol is an egregious example. More than a gallon of petroleum based fuel is consumed to produce every gallon of ethanol, and ethanol could not survive without substantial government subsidies. We pay more for less, because of “green” regulation.
