Good News Comes In Many Disguises

Posted by Phoenix Woman on June 18, 2007

At first I was inclined to be pissed off at the oil companies for using the ethanol boom as a pretext for scaling back on their refinery-building so they can keep enjoying the same $3-a-gallon gas that’s helping to strangle our economy.  (I mean, really:  20 to 30% profits should be enough for anyone.)  But then I realized that this might be the impetus for what’s left of the Big Three automakers to finally get serious about getting more fuel efficient or ditching the internal-combustion engine altogether in time to avoid utterly cooking the planet.

Memo to car companies:  The oil companies are not your friends.  The sooner you recognize this, the better.
