Ethanol Chronicles — An Almost Daily Blog

Sunday, July 12, 2015

The oil industry has been holding its fuel monopoly in place through various means, including funding a successful disinformation campaign for decades. The folks at The Auto Channel are helping to educate people about gasoline's primary competitor, ethanol. They've started The Ethanol Chronicles. They welcome everyone to jump into the discussion.

In the description of the Chronicles, Marc J. Rauch, Vice President and co-publisher of The Auto Channel writes, "On a fairly regular basis, Bob Gordon and I answer questions and respond to comments that are either emailed to us or that we find on other outlets. The following (which you can read here) are some of the best of the banter sessions. Should you get to the point where you'd just like to peruse one single long document that can answer nearly all the questions CLICK HERE."

It is fairly common these days for people to accuse those who don't agree with them of "disinformation." But the oil industry's is real and longstanding, not just about ethanol, but about anything that might cut into their profits. Read more about it here:
