So basically producing ethanol does virtually no good in regards to transitioning the United States to renewable energies.
Here is what I think is the best bet for a solution.
- Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles as opposed to E85 Flex-Fuel Vehicles or current Hybrid Vehicles.
- Implementation of a national (and eventually international) Cap-and-Trade System.
- The development and implementation of some type of Carbon Capture and Storage System.
- National legislation that is similar to recently passed Minnesota Legislation which sets a renewable energy requirement of 25 percent or higher by 2025.
