Obama Orders 100% Alternative Fuels in Government by 2015

In Washington, President Barack Obama has issued a Presidential Memorandum that all federal car fleets must buy only 100% alternative fuel vehicles by the end of 2015. The memo included issues such as vehicle size, engine size, optional equipment, and optimum fleet size as well as leveraging purchasing dollars “to build manufacturing capacity for more alternative fueled vehicles.”

The National Biodiesel Board “applauded the White House’s directive, ordering the federal government to move toward alternative-fuel vehicles, pointing out biodiesel’s unique position as a widely available advanced biofuel that significantly reduces emissions and can be used in existing vehicles.”

Chris Thorne of Growth Energy added: “This demonstrates the Administration’s consistent commitment to reducing our dependence on foreign oil by promoting the use of domestically-produced alternative fuels like ethanol in the federal automotive fleet. Ethanol is the most affordable alternative to oil, and is the only commercially-viable alternative we have to oil today.”

    Ethanol is a net energy loser. Everyone knows that. This plan tells me that our president knows that the massive oil shock that men like Mike Ruppert, Richard Hienburg, Collin Cambell and many others have been warning us about will happen. The first people that will be cut off from oil will be the "peasants" that are 99% of the population. Who cares, as long as the"FEDS" have fuel, . . right? More insane talk from insane leaders.
