Chrysler Chemist Condemns Alt. Fuel Axis of Evil

Speaking at a management seminar, a senior Chrysler chemist cast aside political correctness and identified five groups standing in the way of America's alternative fuel future. Automotive News [sub] reports that Loren Beard fingered five Powers That Be who oppose E85 and suchlike. 1. OPEC (natch) 2. Big Oil ("It will cut into their market share") 3. Japanese automakers ("silver bullet car companies") 4. environmental groups (employ scare tactics against alternative fuels to raise money) and 5. aliens (my guess, Automotive News didn't say). While we await for suitable spin control on Chrysler's new blog (as if), suffice it to say Beard doesn't see any alternative to alternative fuels, other than continued dependence on foreign oil. So much for that, then.

    Just imagine if they could harness the energy in all the hot air they blow up each others arse. No ethanol needed.

    This Chemist must be in charge of creating plastics for Chrysler car interiors.

    Ethanol is not good for Engines in Cold Winter like enviorment like most of Canada where I live, its also not good for fuel lines either as it "eats" them up! It also cost more to produce that its worth IMHO

    If alternate fuel could be produced in huge quantities at low cost [s]and without destroying farmland,[/s] then producers, distributors, and consumers would jump all over it. FTFY
