The Figurative Ethanol Blend Wall
is a Fictional Ethanol Blend Wall
Originally published June 13, 2014...but as true as ever!
My business partner, Bob Gordon, just called my attention to a story that recently appeared on the online publication TheCuttingEdgeNews.com*, titled
"Corn Based Ethanol Hits A Figurative Wall." The story was written by Steve
Baragona, a science and health reporter for the Voice Of America.
The story takes a swipe at the so-called ethanol "blend wall" and then touches
on a couple of other negative myths about ethanol, which I can only presume
were added in because there was no real information as to why or how cornbased ethanol has hit this figurative wall. (Read Steve Baragona's story

As an aside, I'm sort of puzzled as to why Mr. Baragona chose to bother writing
this story, even though it's relatively short length must have taken no more than
a few minutes to compose. If I wanted to be really suspicious I would say that
he must have received a missive from someone in the oil lobby that said they
were paying a few hundred dollars to anyone in the media who wanted to write
something negative about ethanol. And with the advent of summer, he figured
it would be nice to have some extra walking-around money. However, I hope
he only tackled the topic because he or his editors felt it was newsworthy.
