11. Here's the political rub and coming backlash.

Scenario: Democrats win in 2020 and reestablish this ban. Republican make a huge deal of it for campaign fodder down the road, making it even harder for Democrats to win red districts. This is 100% a political ploy by GOP strategists.

The environmental progress we've made in the last several decades should not be reversible by the stoke of a pen by any President. Allowing these rules to be established, then reversed, then reestablished is insanity. Congress should somehow step in and firm these rules into law.

Obviously we need to continue drifting away from fossil fuels completely and stop adulterating the supply chain for food products like corn. Whether we agree with ethanol use or not, the established environmental rules should not be used as political tokens to score campaign points. Republicans are on the losing end of these arguments but can't seem to stop playing laissez-faire politics with our environment and health.

KY......
