"We can’t drill our way out of our problems. We can drive down the cost of gasoline by using ethanol,” he said.
“Ethanol is greener than gasoline and has 60 percent less carbon intensity. It doesn’t pollute beaches; countries don’t go to war over it and it’s our fuel. We’re making it. Every barrel of ethanol produced is a barrel of oil we’re not importing,” explained Clark.
The technology behind producing ethanol is “all-American” he said. “It’s high-tech stuff and every year we get better and better at it.
“I believe we made a historic, tragic blunder by relying on foreign oil imports. Ethanol is on the front line of securing our national commitment to energy independence,” he said.
Clark told the ethanol supporters at the meeting, “Let’s make the future happen and let’s start now. The ethanol industry is one of the salvations of America.”
Wesley Clark can lead us to energy independence
