"It's not easy being green"

In an editorial in tomorrow's Wall Street Journal, that's how the editors pretty much sum up a new study published in the latest Science Magazine (which The FDC points out is a "peer-reviewed general-science journal") that concludes that "trendy climate-change policies like ethanol and other biofuels are actually worse for the environment than fossil fuels."

But, Congress and the Bush Administration have already mandated a five-fold increase in ethanol production. Are the politicians and the environmentalists going to take steps to revoke the mandates? Fat chance. Those responsible will just make a lame effort to change the subject - again.
