The EPA’s war on your car

Democrats like to accuse the Right of waging war on many things including women, Blacks, unions, working families, immigrants, the environment, and Homosexuals among others. But, it is really the Left, not the Right that is waging war on all of those groups listed above, and now, Chris Wysocki tells us that they are hating on your car!

Obama’s Green Goons are determined to put Karo Syrup into every gas tank in America, and they don’t really care how many car engines they destroy while doing it. Their latest ethanol concoction — E15 — is toxic to your engine. Which matters not one whit to the EPA; their regulations say we have to use it, and so use it we will.

We already know that E10, the current ethanol blend, gums up the works in small engines like snowblowers and lawn mowers. Now a new study proves that E15 is like Kryptonite to your car.

The fuel industry’s American Petroleum Institute tested the 15 percent ethanol gas approved in 2010 and found it gums up fuel systems, prompts “check engine” lights to come on, and messes with fuel gauge readings.

“Failure of these components could result in breakdowns that leave consumers stranded on busy roads and highways,” said the industry report. Worse: API said the fuel problems–not found in E5 or E10 blends–aren’t always covered by auto warranties.

The industry prefers pure fuel to an ethanol mix, but the report isn’t likely to slow the administration’s green push, according to a Washington auto lobbyist.

It is difficult to precisely calculate how many vehicles E15 could harm. That depends on how widely it is used and other factors. But, given the kinds of vehicles tested, it is safe to say that millions could be impacted.

Remember too that every ear of corn which ends up in your gas tank is one less box of cereal for a hungry child. The EPA hates children! And cars.

I would say that this is another example of the Law of Unintended Consequences, but, if the EPA knows what this stuff can do ahead of time, maybe this is more about abuse of power, another thing the Left loves to partake in. If the Founders were around today, their heads would likely explode.

 

Oh no, Al Gore is freaking out again!

Well, actually, it seems Gore is in perpetual freak out mode so, this is just par for the course!

Al Gore is beside himself at the fact that Fox News executives told their employees not to report global warming rhetoric from the likes of, well, Al Gore, as unquestionable scientific fact without also offering the other side of the story. Scandal!

To me that’s the definition of “fair and balanced,” but to Gore it’s dangerously biased, manipulative reporting.
