3. if this move was to limit work on renewables it would be different. Progress on renewables is not

proceeding quickly enough for a variety of reasons. We could add methanol from forestry and agricultural waste for more renewable fuel but the Oil industry would fight that too.

If we had a real program to advance renewables we would have required all cars to be FFVs - and that they be made to optimize ethanol's (and methanol's) higher octane than gasoline's and achieve better fuel efficiency than cars running on gasoline. THus, even using fossil gas to make ethanol/methanol we would still be lowering GHGs versus using only gasoline. see?
