Inefficent Extraction

a: Crop ethanol fuel ~
b: using natural gas to do tar sands extraction

What: "Converting crops to ethanol fuel is like using natural gas to extract heavy bitumen from tar sands - you are using up a "good" thing to produce a poor or mediocre substitute. The special interest groups are too interested in getting a chunk of cash for themselves to worry about the common good. We should always follow the carpenter's maxim of measuring twice before we cut once."
