The short but to the point report lists the ways that the federal government propped up ethanol with massive federal subsidies, hid the facts that ethanol was damaging the environment, and continued to reward their crony environmental companies with taxpayer dollars – all the while trumpeting alternative fuels and the need to get off fossil fuels. Tom Udall, Mr. Alternative Energy, voted to promote these subsidies until later in his career when he decided that maybe ethanol was not all it was cracked up to be.
