Stop shoving ethanol impaired gasoline down our throats!

We could take natural gas and make ammonia out of it, and combine the ammonia with gasoline in the same way ethanol is. Then sell the excess corn to China.

There is a long piece in the current Forbes describing the Celenese plant in Houston that will make ethanol from coal and natural gas. They will make it so cheap the corn ethanol plants will be unable to compete on cost and they have strong arguments about less CO2 emissions in their process vs corn grown ethanol.

They make acedic acid...... vinegar and turn itbacl into wine, pure ethanol. Their ethanol has a higher alcohol content than the distilled product.

They are building another such plant in China with 60 million gallon capacity
