"Support for ethanol is validation that said supporter is from a corn growing state."

Translation: Finger in the wind politics is OK.

Does he still support the Global Warming Scam? If not, where is his admission of being duped?

Below is a link to a liberal site that proclaims that Pence doesn't believe in global warming. The actual quotation does give him wiggle room ("the science is very mixed") but I believe that was before the East Anglia debacle.

Do note that some folks who support ethanol do so because they believe that it lessens U.S. dependence on foreign oil, not because of global warming. Others have been lobbied successfully that ethanol is essential to the state's economy. Even Jesse Helms supported tobacco subsidies. Crop subsidies are not the hill that these conservatives want to die on.

Though I hate the ethanol scam, there’s nothing about being pro-ethanol that requires one to be an AGW believer. Diversity of energy sources is a good idea in itself, and if ethanol was all that its supporters claim, I’d be an rnthusiastic supporter, too, though I would still oppose subsidies.
