New cars can run on a 20% mix of ethanol with gas, and only minor changes are required for new cars to run on any mix of ethanol and gasoline, up to 85% ethanol, known as E85
Surplus Corn: this is a good use for surplus corn production.
Global Warming: the burning of fossil fuels releases CO2, a primary contributor to global warming. Ethanol has the potential to significantly reduce our CO2 emissions.
Pollution & related health problems: Ethanol burns cleaner than gasoline, and would reduce problems such as asthma and some cancers.
Foreign Relations / Dependence on Foreign Oil: much of our economy relies on continued supplies of oil from countries with unstable governments.
“Peak Oil”: Oil is not a renewable resource; it will get increasingly scarce and eventually become too expensive to extract. This concept is known as “Peak Oil”, and while there is much debate about when it will arrive, some analysts believe we may be close to, or already past our peak of oil extraction.
