Ethanol Chronicles - SPECIAL EDITION:
David Are You There?
Originally published March 17, 2017
In 2015, I hosted a regular weblog on TheAutoChannel.com called "Ethanol
Chronicles." I stopped at the end of 2015 because it became rather tiresome to
respond to the same ill-informed and often inane questions and comments
against ethanol - often from the same people over and over. I guess they
thought we wouldn't remember them or that rephrasing an ignorant anti-ethanol
comment would stump us. I'm not saying that there isn't a need to keep fighting
back, but in 2016 I found enough other venues to present the truth about ethanol.
However, yesterday Bob Gordon and I replied to a series of near-hysterical
press releases issued by ethanol-haters and Trump-haters. In response to one
of Bob's replies, a reader named "David" wrote to my business partner on DISQUS to attack him and what he wrote. Bob's comments were included in a story
titled "How Can Such Smart People Be So Stupid?"
Well, as those who know us, know, Bob and I are from Brooklyn. We discussed
David's comments and it was decided that I would be the one to reply. Why me?
