Bush to Form Alliance With Brazil to Promote Ethanol Fuel


Source Link: www.foxnews.com

SAO PAULO, Brazil — Just an hour's drive outside this traffic-choked metropolis where President Bush kicks off a Latin American tour Thursday, sugar cane fields stretch for hundreds of miles, providing the ethanol that fuels eight out of every 10 new Brazilian cars.

In only a few years, Brazil has turned itself into the planet's undisputed renewable energy leader, and the highlight of Bush's visit is expected to be a new ethanol "alliance" he will forge with Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.

This is one more push toward an American Union.
This move will appeal to the greenies and anyone who
upset with "big oil" so thats two more groups who
will support the AU.

They said the EU wasnt happening either.

Oh well.

Sorry Bud,

Ethanol contains less energy per unit volume than gasoline. You actually end up paying more for fuel because of that. The price of ethanol is also comparable to that of gasoline. It will probably get cheaper if the trend catches on and the number of suppliers increase but that is a long way off yet.
