If Ernie Shea is right and ethanol is still the answer, he is wrong if he believes that corn-based ethanol is the right answer ("Ethanol still the answer," Sept. 21). I have no problem with the Renewable Fuel Standard passed by Congress. I do have a...

The use of ethanol in gasoline has a long and sordid history ("Food or fuel?" Aug. 3). By the early 1990s, EPA regulations had reduced tailpipe emissions from new cars by over 95 percent of 970s levels, and only about 3 percent of the hydrocarbons in...
Charles Campbell's letter ("U.S. must abandon corn-based ethanol," Aug. 29) blames American biofuels for everything from air pollution to malnutrition. But the facts tell a very different story. Far from having no impact on air pollution or actually...

My recent letter of questioning the use of corn to produce ethanol prompted the expected rebuttal from the Renewable Fuels Association ("U.S. must abandon corn-based ethanol," Aug. 28). That, however, doesn't change the fact that corn ethanol only...
Corn prices have reached record highs as a result of this summer's devastating drought, and it hasn't taken long for some to use the crisis as leverage for their own political agendas — namely, the opposition to domestic renewable fuel. The...
Rookie Baltimore police officers Jason Dipaola and Steven Vinias were sent to Mount Vernon to provide a sense of security to a neighborhood shaken by a double shooting. They may have ended up solving the case. After stopping a group of young people...
