Nuclear power, biofuels, clean coal: These are the Obama administration’s answers to climate change. The 2011 budget, released this week, promised new loans for the construction of nuclear power plants, and on Wednesday the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), White House, and other departments detailed steps to encourage ethanol and clean coal production.

Below is the link to the best defence of ethanol I have seen
… The ethanol subsidy pays for itself. You Do Not pay more for ethanol than gasoline, as the study falsely claims. You actually pay more for gasoline, because subsidies for crude oil, which includes the foreign oil investment tax credit, and protecting our foreign oil supplies, costs $85 to $100 billion a year. Add that to the cost of your gasoline and diesel fuel. Now add the revolving interest you pay on the debt instruments we use to buy foreign oil. Domestic ethanol is much cheaper than gasoline, when all the hidden costs of gasoline are included. Furthermore, burning gasoline and diesel fuel is doing much more damage to the environment and to your health, than clean burning ethanol and biodiesel.
