Never Mind

Arriving no doubt by limousine for the interview, former vice-president Al Gore admitted that he now regrets supporting subsidies for corn-based ethanol production.  "First generation ethanol I think was a mistake. The energy conversion ratios are at best very small."  And, "It's hard once such a programme is put in place to deal with the lobbies that keep it going."  One more, "The size, the percentage of corn particularly, which is now being (used for) first generation ethanol definitely has an impact on food prices."

No sweat Mr. Vice-President.  We've always got food stamps.  Thanks anyway.  Uh, fill'er up?
