OK, get out your angry commenting fingers...it's time to talk about how the lion's share of our renewable energy budget goes to the least effective form of renewable energy!!!
The above graph compiled by the Environmental Working Group is pretty self-explanatory. Of course, it would be nice to see the breakdown between corn-based ethanol subsidies and cellulosic ethanol subsidies (which actually make sense.) Unfortunately, we're afraid that it would look a heck of a lot similar to the graph above, except maybe with a third little wedge in Pacman's mouth.
So now you know...the agriculture lobby in America is a lot stronger than you thought it was.
