Dan visits White House Gains E85 Approval



................................................................................................................

All Americans have a self-evident unalienable right to fuel with high blends of ethanol to protect themselves and family members from gasoline octane’s benzene and associated polycyclic aromatic PAH emissions identical to those found in cigarette smoke. There is no recommended safe level of exposure benzene or cigarette smoke and ethanol’s two carbon molecule simply does not contain or produce them plus its added oxygen assures more complete combustion of all carbon based molecules.

.................................................................................................................

As you will see in the read more Dan and Democratic State Representative Mike O'Connor visited the White House to break the big oil created cultural taboo against putting E85 in any vehicle. Auto's engineers were also programed to believe E85 in any vehicle was fantasy thus they had to drive the corn grower's E85 car to believe.

Then about five years later auto manufacturers produced their first FFV that was a simple matter of computer programing change for cold starting blends above e50 as SD corn had proved. The biggest issue was expanding e E85 specs to include up to 50% gasoline, according to season, as being E85 as it is today. Al Kasperson , Lake Area Tech's auto technician department head, was corn's technical advisor and figured that out immediately. Al always comments: "German engineers can design but it takes a Norwegian to make it run" Every vehicle in America today is a flex fuel vehicle at least up to E30. be sure to read more for Dan's first person narrative about how he worked an invitation to the White House with almost desperate last chance phone call to president Bush's legal council before leaving DC.

Dan was SD Corn Growers and Utilization Council CEO all the time as I went through the vice-president to president chairs of both organizations. We worked together through that time and my main job was to call Dan and ask what is happening as his mind and creative skills were always running at top speed. He often thanks the board and myself for the opportunity run with almost unbridled enthusiasm and passion to do what he loved doing: Slay oil interests intimidating dragons of misinformation that did and still drive our energy future.

One of the first visitors to the new corn office to meet Dan was Jeff Broin. Jeff's first response from state officials started with a predictable "There is no money for a ethanol producer incentive". Luckily Roland Pester had made the motion to create the SD corn growers: Dan and corn growers were off to slay another dragon or the governor's policy to ignore the producer payment law or incentive... We won and Jeff Broin's very successful and earned start in SD is well known history.

Dan and I had always wanted to put a book together recording the period we were at Corn Growers. About seven years ago I asked Dan to send me some of his recollections for putting some kind of formal document together. Really to use his notes to just do something more formal as Dan intended would destroy their real value in history. The real history is as Dan revealed in these hurried notes he sent to me. A history that could not be revealed in any other manner.

Truly truth is stranger than fiction and far, far more humorous.

EPA's Dirty Rotten Scoundrels



Call Out : "Epa's Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" Add Billions to Rural Wealth Doug Sombke, President of SD Farmers Union; My voice - SF Argus Leader 8-10-17

I was amazed at the irony in a Wall Street Journal headline "Those Dirty Rotten Ethanol Scoundrels"......are bootlegging ethanol into gasoline as if it's an evil plot. The irony is EPA's dirty rotten scoundrels have aligned with petroleum to nefariously claim ethanol's low carbon, 94 octane 30% blend damages engine systems and is illegal to use in standard autos.

Veterans' Duty to Warn

.

..........................................................................................................................

Greed to control oil supplies also caused the Iraq War's hidden devastating collateral damage to US trigger pullers' children

........................................................................................................................

Iraq and Vietnam trigger pullers' children have a prohibitively high rate of suicide yet remain collateral damage the US does not want to statistically recognize.

The Australians statistically report and try to prevent them and other very high rate tragic life outcomes for all Vietnam veterans' spouses and siblings offering free counseling to age 36. The US will not even report the Australian Vietnam veterans' children suicide findings to our veterans.

Pictured is Jack Jr my close friend Jack's son who committed suicide ten or so years ago. Jack is a Vietnam combat veteran that still shows evidence of the thousand yard stare common place for those who survived in remote area active kill or be killed realities. A historically recognized thousand yard stare I became very familiar with at Danang or a hub for air (including very low level napalm,etc deliveries) and ground killing operations.

Dr Rachel McNair"s congressionally funded research of those Vietnam veterans diagnosed to have PTSD (a debilitating anxiety disorder) found that being shot at, wounded, or watching a friend die etc are secondary trauma compared to killing or thought to have killed a human being: Yes, even though made theoretically easier by calling them gooks. VA psychiatrist Dr Andrew Pomerentz finds "Only the already insane are not mentally challenged by killing another human being".

My then 17 year old son and J J were friends and companions. Several hours after J J had passed I talked to Jack at the hospital: Though obviously shaken he immediately asked "How is Pat?" also code for asking "is it us?" My very first Google search I was shocked to find that an exhaustive Australian Vietnam veteran morbidity study shockingly also found overall their predominantly male children were three times more likely to commit suicide and twice as likely die in an accident: Remarkably understated !!

Those numbers are far too conservative for trigger pullers like Jack surviving in remote area kill or be killed realities: The overall suicide rate does not consider up to 80% of Vietnam veterans were not trigger pullers doing especially the close up killing: Thus their behaviors would not affect their children's suicide rate any more than a typical Walmart employee would affect his children's suicide rate. Jack's humble response to all of this: "I wish somebody had told me".

Our soldiers' children will continue to be collateral damage as long as war is deemed necessary to assure US access to imported oil. Our SD VFW recognized this reality and soon after 911 sponsored a major bill board campaign in SD reminding all Americans "Foreign Oil Funds Terrorism". We followed with our SD VFW 4th of July drive for energy independence.

We were joined by SD Farmers Union members who traditionally have great respect for veterans and participated in or lost family members to war. They also strongly believe our potential ethanol production free from fake stupid barriers can end our cycle of oil wars like Iraq: To demonstrate feasibility we created a well-publicized and reported on convoy of 1988 to new 2005 standard autos fueling half E85 (E40)for a successful 100 mile trip.

We also wanted to put a first stick in the eye of fake, stupid barriers government, political, EPA, oil and disappointingly ethanol plus corn leaders created. They claimed we along with others were rogue bandits illegally fueling with cheaper half E85 and would damage standard auto engines. Remarkably standard auto owners since have driven many, many millions of miles on cheaper E30/half E85 proving there is no codified law against it plus they report more power, cleaner engines and the same mileage: Yet these leaders still insist on repeating the same ethanol demonizing and nefariously stupid lies daily assuring conflicts to control oil supplies will continue

Several revealing spontaneous comments added clarity as VFW members formally discussed the mission in an area adjacent to our club's bar including a comment "most Americans automatically think fueling with half E85 is too risky." A voice then cynically noted "compared to what?" followed by a quiet cynical chorus of chuckles muttering "ya, compared to what?"

EPA Agents Raid Watertown Blender Pumps

..........................................................................................................................

In 2007 Epa proved memorandum 1a made it legal for standard auto owners to fuel with E30.

..........................................................................................................................

Early after blenders were installed, an Epa government agent enforcement crew announced in an almost threatening manner they were going to Watertown's Cenex location adjacent to the interstate. This station is the symbolic nation's first, longest operating, always busy, multiple blender pump location.

These government agents wore boldly visible IRS or Epa badges as they strode out to tell non-flex auto owners they were illegally saving $2-4/tank fueling their auto with 94 octane premium E30.

Their bullying tactics did not work. No woman or man was intimidated, kept on fueling and some very aggressively intimidated the government agents. This cross section of Americans were definitely made of the 'right stuff'.

The manager's(Gary French) description of this 2007 bizarre day to me(Orrie Swayze) was spoken in his usual unshaken manner and always with a slight grin: "First they were very indignant with a threatening: -We will be back next week-, by noon it was -in two weeks-and by evening it was -maybe we will not come back-". They never came back because they knew it is not tampering or illegal to fuel a non-flex auto with E30.

Epa's enforcement team did not take action against anyone as a result of that trip to Watertown. In fact they have never fined anyone for selling E30 to a non-flex auto owner or a standard auto owner for fueling with E30. Epa knows such fines would definitely be a violation of the clean air act's Memorandum 1a

Daschle High Octane Low Carbon fuel Alliance



HOLC 94 octane premium E30 is all auto owners best fuel choice because:

1. All auto engines are better optimized for premium E30 than unleaded/E10.

2.Premium E30 high oxygen content's more complete combustion prevents costly engine intake valve carbon deposits plaguing today's modern gas direct injection (GDI) turbo charged engines.

3. For over ten years non flex auto owners traveled tens of millions miles annually utilizing premium E30 typically reporting "more power, can't tell mpg difference

4. .Most importantly, HOLC premium E30 slashes black carbon's carbon based benzene and related PAH emissions or today's neurotoxic equivalent to lead

.......................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

The Daschle HOLC fuel alliance demonstrates that finally autos, government, National Corn Growers Assn, Renewable Fuels Assn, natural gas, biomass, public opinion, agribusinesses, and farmers can agree on one thing: High octane low carbon fuels like ethanol's 94 octane premium E30 are the future:

Consensus has it that high octane low carbon fuels or higher midlevel blends are the ideal also dramatically slashing gasoline's most toxic emissions and engine carbon deposits. Evidenced by The Daschle HOLC alliance announced recently. This alliance includes Clean Fuels Development Coalition, RFA and the National Corn Growers Assn including their wide array of sponsors like John Deere etc.

Most importantly environmental groups are joining the alliance: HOlC fuels wide support is beginning to better recognize that premium 94 octane E30 is the most cost effective, best performing HOLC octane enhancer for all autos are better designed for compared to unleaded..



E30's Octane's higher oxygen content assures more complete combustion that slash engine damaging intake valve carbon deposits plaguing modern, turbocharged, gas direct injection engines! Most importantly slashing gasoline's benzene and related emissions that are gasoline's new lead equivalent preying especially on our smallest children.

    E30 Prevents costly carbon build up plaguing Ecoboost/Ecotech engine intake valves

    Unburned carbon deposits have been damaging auto engines since gasoline replaced Henry Ford's E30 as the primary auto fuel. Do you know?.......... Since introduction of more efficient gas direct injection engines(Eco boost etc) a new very expensive problem for intake valves has surfaced.

    Typically fuel is injected into intake manifold ports to move past intake valves cleaning them. With today's new direct cylinder injection engines, the detergents found in gasoline are never in contact with intake valves to clean them: This sets the stage for ever increasing volumes of black carbon to bake onto intake valve surfaces. Drivability problems are a first indication of this carbon build up and a very expensive repair bill coming due. The auto manufactures' recommended fix is to replace the head or heads costing 5 to 10 thousand minimum

    What all direct injection engine owners can do!

    First we all must recognize that E30's higher oxygen content assures more complete combustion significantly strangling harmful engine black carbon deposits that cause dirty oil and all manner of inefficiencies and engine damage /xcessive intake valve carbon build up, dirtier oil and resulting engine damage.auto manufacturers recommend the best protection from these carbon deposits is a well tuned engine and frequent oil changes maintaining clean oil. Plus auto makers are moving to employ dual port and direct indirection systems with Eco boost type engines eliminating intake valve carbon build up

  • Article: "High Blend Ethanol Burns Cleaner, Reduces Engine Wear & Increases Vehicle Lifespan"<



    ................................................................................................................

    Second we all must recognize we have been scammed big time: Contrary to oil interests propaganda echoed by EPA, all auto engines are better optimized or designed to operate on 94 high octane low carbon premium E30 compared to 87 low octane high carbon regular unleaded or E10/15.. And filling with premium E30 is especially Eco boost/eco tech auto owners best tool to prevent costly, unwanted repair bills due to excessive carbon buildup on intake valves.

    Hoodwinked Ethanol leaders Build Blend Wall

    I am Doug Sombke president of the SD Farmers Union. Welcome to our SD Farmers Union premium E30.com web site. Farmers Union is asking for support to create a regional revolution against petroleum/EPA's deceptive propaganda claiming E30 is illegal for non-flex autos. SD Farmers Union recognizes that false claim, because it is supported by ethanol leaders, has built the blend wall that has been artificially keeping grain prices lower and especially this year cash flows at or near crisis level..

    This two page handout including the 'Ethanol Leaders Hoodwinked' editorial(click read more) lays out ethanol supporters' legal case proving that a non-flex fuel auto owner fueling with E30 is performing a Clean Air Act defined legal tampering act.

    To date EPA claims the CAA says to approve E30 for non-flex autos we must follow the same trail used to get approval for E15: But we are not looking for EPA to approve anything: We are demanding EPA follow the law or CAA memorandum 1a written specifically to say all tampering is legal if the citizen has a reasonable basis for knowing emissions, emissions equipment/engines are not degraded: ie fueling non-flex auto with E30 is a legal tampering choice for the owner.

    EPA stated previous policy of requiring EPA approval before tampering was causing uncertainty and unnecessary restraints on commerce: Epa violates CAA memo 1a law by saying non-flex auto owners are prohibited to fuel with E30 effectively creating illegal restraints on commerce: Restraints that relatively increased gasoline prices and lowered grain prices effectively extorting billions annually from farmers, related agribusinesses and auto owners.

    SD Big Vision Business Plan

    Jason Frerichs: State senator-Wilmot,SD

    ................................................................

    "When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses......the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker, a raving lunatic." Dresden James

    ..........................................................

    My Dad Kent, neighbor Orrie Swayze, and I have plotted ethanol strategy for 30 years: We see growing support for a big vision business plan for SD that benefits all auto owners first: Historically the big vision included free enterprise dramatically increasing demand for ethanol's 'sweet spot' or premium E30: That today would double our ethanol industry, its associated good jobs and widespread business activity.

    First we must start honestly informing (so-called) non-flex fuel auto owners they are not second class citizens and can legally fuel with 94 octane E30's unique charge air cooling's more power. E30's high oxygen content means more complete combustion nearly eliminating engine damaging carbon deposits i.e. remarkably cleaner oil and engines lowering maintenance costs.

    Why would auto owners choose regular unleaded, e10/15 if premium E30 is available?

    For over ten years we and thousands of pioneering undesignated flex fuel auto owners have annually driven millions of trouble free miles on half E85 and today blender pumps' premium E30. From the beginning typical comments have always been 'more power' and 'can't tell any mileage difference'.

    Why aren't all Midwest state owned undesignated flex fuel autos operating on E30 demonstrating premium E30's benefits? The truth is state leaders fear challenging an 'out of control'EPA sponsored fraudulent perception: "E30 is illegal for and damages (so-called) non-flex fuel engines"

    As a state senator, I am hopeful we can generate bi-partisan support for putting SD state owned undesignated flex fuel autos on E30. Then adjoining state leaders will be encouraged to follow our lead to openly support all auto owners' right to benefit by choosing ethanol's premium blend E30. Midwest states moving together putting all state owned autos on E30 will shock EPA. EPA can cry foul but the Clean Air Act's amended anti-tampering provisions will not allow any legal recourse.

    SD Adopts Hallberg's Big Ethanol Vision

    March 2014 headline: ''Agribusiness Study Ranks SD No 1". Our creative business policies began in 1984 when Dave Hallberg(pictured) , the founding president and CEO of the Renewable Fuels Assn, brought his big vision of a massive expanding ethanol industry back to his home state South Dakota. Dave's big vision was that even small rural states could be big players in the ethanol industry if they restricted their ethanol tax incentives to instate producers: He consented to testify before a transportation committee hearing to kill all SD gas tax incentives for ethanol use. The committee unanimously defeated the bill to follow Dave's recommendations that began a process to restrict SD ethanol incentives to instate produced gallons only. A process that made small state SD a formidable billion gallon ethanol producer within 10 years.

    Most importantly SD citizens and legislators bought into Dave's big winning vision that state incentives restricted to instate ethanol production would act as a catalyst to build a big economic impact ethanol industry in SD: Dave and Nebraska's Todd Sneller than often provided expert testimony on the ethanol industry for the summer study committee on the issue: That study resulted in different proposals that lead to a unique first and only law that taxed SD imported petroleum products at the pipeline (no other state dared follow) to create cash incentive to build SD ethanol plants. Over the next several years over $100 million was made available at $1million annually per new ethanol plant built in SD plant: Small state SD then built a billion gallon ethanol industry.

    A September,1985 AP news story described a "Sharp Turn" in rural policy: The SD Agriculture summer study committee called for legislation to tax or the preferred language at first by legislators 'tank inspection fee' on imported petroleum to build a SD ethanol industry. SD Farmers Union was the lead organization lobbying for the bill: a SD Corn Growers did not exist at the time.

    The AP news story related Rep Scott Heidepriem chaired the committee and Governor Bill Janklow and staff helped fine tune the legislative proposal. Farmers Union members Rep (R) Bob Weber and (D) Doris Minor and also rural democrats were described as 'pushing hardest' for the legislation. Orrie Swayze was described as the plan's main author.

    Gasoline Benzene Tailpipe Emissions Double Toll on Babies Brains: American Medical Assn report



    Click Read More For AMA Report

    ................................................................................................,..............

    Medical doctors do not hesitate to talk about pollution's benzene and related emissions destruction of babies brain matter(click read more) Ah!.... but like oil interests ethanol proponents and enviros do not even want to bring the subject up. Too shocking? -Ethanol does not contain or produce plus slashes benzene emissions.- This AMA shocking research measured babies' brain matter destruction caused by 'PAH' or simply put benzene and benzene associated gasoline emissions: Brain matter destruction most significant before and the first five years after birth causing learning disabilities, attention deficit, lower IQ, autism,behavioral issues etc..... Ethanol and environmental leader do not seem to care.

    According to ethanol industry and EPA policies gasoline octane's benzene/pah emissions do not matter. The primary source of benzene our children must endure is gasoline octane's benzene tailpipe emissions. Benzene is the primary building block for 'PAH' or aromatic octane, is a known human carcinogen, neurotoxin, mutagen making it the world's consensus most wide spread, toxic air pollutant. Benzene is the primary toxic combustion product, along with the particulates that deliver them to the blood stream, of gasoline's benzene related aromatic octane that 30% ethanol can replace.

    EPA and the World Health Organization agree: "there is no safe level of exposure to airborne benzene". Ethanol does not contain or produce benzene and related emissions: E30 can replace benzene producing octane called aromatics (toluene and xylene) that do.

    Historically, It is obvious government's regulators teamed with petroleum's propaganda "E30 is illegal and ruins standard auto engines" to lock ethanol out of meaningful octane market participation. This team has maliciously poisoned our children first with lead and today's comparably toxic,carcinogenic, neurotoxic benzene emissions. They also successfully strangled free enterprise's role in gasoline markets since lead was introduced.

    South Dakota Rural Democrats Lead a 'Sharp Turn' in Business Policy

    sdfu.org/saferair.net opinion

    ..................................................................................................................

    Merle Anderson, the 65 year old founder of American Coalition for Ethanol now 94, is actively supportingTom Daschle's new High Octane Low Carbon fuel alliance. "My understanding this high octane low carbon fuel is just a fancy title for E30's high octane fuel. I have never owned a designated flex fuel vehicle and have driven over 600,000 miles with my vehicles using E30 or higher blend since E85 came to Minnesota. I believe that working with Daschle's fuel alliance we will soon completely destroy the ethanol blend wall."

    .................................................................................................................

    Dream Big Like Merle and Tom

    A historical reminder to dream big: A September, 1985 AP news story described a 'rural democrats and R-Bob Weber' (all SD farmers union members) pushed hardest for a "sharp turn' in SD legislative business policy direction. A summer study legislative committee recommended that a one cent tax/gallon on SD pipeline imported fuels would be a 'good business plan'. The plan eventually directed $1 million/year/plant up to 7million/plant to subsidize building a huge SD ethanol industry creating thousands of jobs and expand livestock production.

    The plan did build a huge SD ethanol industry creating thousands of jobs and expand livestock production. Expectantly, it would also create hundreds millions of additional value for our agricultural /related business resources and lower fuel costs several to fifty cents a gallon: Orrie Swayze was referred to as the main author of the plan.

    Fantasy? Hardly, because that SD good business plan or tax incentive brought Broins to the Scotland plant or Poet's birth place plus SD's billion gallon ethanol industry. Remarkably SD's ethanol plant building boom spread across the Midwest and continues to lower your fuel costs up to fifty cents/gallon and add millions to business activity across SD and other states. Tragically SD's big vision leadership role for our corn ethanol industry has faded into a 'one and done' small vision:

    Let's revive SD's leadership for big vision, good business policies by putting state owned non-flex fuel vehicles on E30 and utilize remaining pipeline tax revenues assuring all SD auto owners access to lower cost ethanol's premium blend E30. We will double corn ethanol demand enabling free enterprise principles to add thousands of jobs, hundreds of millions of new wealth and business activity across rural economies again.

    Fantasy? Hardly, historically other states followed the SD ethanol plant building boom and E85 blender pump installations. Most importantly auto makers followed the SD created nation's first, legendary E85 flex fuel auto (1988 Corsica with E85 painted on the doors) by producing their own versions. Little doubt SD leadership can lead auto makers/ auto owners to embrace ethanol’s premium blend E30 for so called non-flex fuel vehicles.

    Dear Ethanol supporters We do not need a lawyer to read the law for us: Read the exact wording of the CAA Memorandum 1a below that defines why fueling a non-flex auto with E30 is legal tampering; Contrary to EPA statements that it is illegal. This illegal myth costs agriculture, auto owners and ethanol industry hundreds of billions annually. Letter - Hoodwinked ……. Watertown Public Opinion Jan 4 • 1 hr ago Together petroleum/EPA hoodwinked nearly all political and ethanol leaders into naively spreading their propaganda saying E30 is illegal for non-flex fuel autos: Propaganda that strangles ethanol markets and rural economies: Imagine doubling ethanol demand. Ironically, for millions of times these past 10 years, pioneering non-flex auto owners have repeatedly fueled with blender pumps’ 94 octane premium E30. No one has been fined. They consistently report and research confirms more power, same mileage and saving $2-4/tank fill. Those realities confirm the 1974 Clean Air Act Memorandum 1a’s “reasonable basis for knowing” standard makes fueling non-flex autos with E30 legal tampering: 1a reversed EPA tampering provisions saying citizens need EPA’s approval before tampering. 1a defines tampering as installing aftermarket parts, add on systems or making adjustments and alterations (like increasing fuel ethanol content) that change system parameters. EPA’s nearly impossible approval process before tampering created “uncertainty and unnecessary restraints on commerce.” Stunningly, EPA’s fix was enacting Memorandum 1a making all tampering acts legal (like fueling higher blends in non-flex autos) ... if the citizen has “reasonable basis for knowing” emissions, emissions equipment/engines are not degraded. Then it’s EPA’s burden proving to the individual citizen he/she doesn’t have reasonable basis for knowing. Skeptical? Google 1974 memorandum 1a pgs 2, 3, 1977 addendum assures 1a includes persons “reasonable basis for knowing”: Citizens and EPA have known for years pioneering non-flex auto owners have successfully and repeatedly fueled with blender pumps premium E30. And there has not been a single legitimate parts warranty denial reported or we would all know about it. Active, major repudiation of petroleum/EPA’s fraudulent claim that fueling non-flex autos with E30 is illegal will dramatically increase availability of blender pumps E30. Then nearly all auto owners can save $2-4/tank fill, increase power and slash gasoline’s toxic emissions while creating more local jobs. Orrie Swayze Wilmot 1.

    Clean AirAct declares E30 is legal for all autos

    Roger Johnson: National Farmers Union President

    SD Farmers Union delegates lead by president Doug Sombke brought a resolution to the floor at our annual meeting that stirred quite a debate but passed as amended on a very clear majority voice vote. Our NFU resolution challenges EPA's interpretation of Clean Air Act to allege it is illegal to fuel non-flex fuel autos with higher midlevel blends such as E30.







    Bill Gates: Its the Protein Stupid



    for reference Google: bill gates why hunger still exists in africa

    Distillers high protein food grade co-products (ddg) used as food supplements can globally defeat protein malnutrition or the root cause of what is mistakenly called 'starvation'. Bill Gates recognizes starvation rarely exists today and the real problem is 'stunting' both physically and mentally (IQ) that is caused by malnutrition. Globally, more definitively referred to as Protein Energy Malnutrition -PEM.

    Quoting Bill Gates: "Today the issue isn't quantity of food as much as it is quality----whether kids are getting enough protein and other nutrients to fully develop". One in four children globally is malnourished or stunted both physically and mentally(IQ). Gates suggests the best way to address this challenge is 'fortifying' food staples already in the diet with dietary essentials including proteins. Three fourths of malnourished 'stunted' children are in Africa. for reference Google: bill gates why hunger still exists in africa

    Importantly our $60 billion food processing or 'functional' food industry, South Dakota State University and other research agree with the Bill Gates assessment. And they also agree that food grade ddgs are an almost uniquely fungible, nearly optimal, protein rich, highly digestible food supplemental ingredient: A supplemental food ingredient that makes nearly all native food staples, processed or functional foods far more nutritious and healthier. Functional foods are foods that have a potentially positive effect on health beyond basic nutrition. (click on read more for references)

    Obviously nearly all the ethanol production food for fuel hysterics are far too simplistic, uninformed and have it dead wrong. Unfortunately- for especially children in poorer nations-these uninformed hysterics crush corn ethanol co-product's massive potential to globally 'fortify' existing food staples with protein rich food grade ddgs:

    Lets get past oil industry propaganda: We must recognize that bushels of corn used to produce ethanol and protein rich ddg food supplements can be far more effective combating especially poverty's hunger and malnutrition than other uses of those same bushels .

    Most importantly we all must recognize that assuring poverty stricken populations have nutritionally sufficient diets is the most humanitarian and effective tool for ending poverty or the root cause of hunger, malnutrition, energy and IQ deficiencies. With the tools nutritionally sufficient diets offer, poverty stricken populations are more likely to rise out of the depths of despair by being more energetic and mentally capable(higher IQ) to learn and take advantage of or create their own educational opportunities:

    "Corn Ethanol's Health and Wellness Win,Win"

    1.Corn ethanol production provides a massive resource to produce fungible, food grade distillers' grain supplements that will significantly increase production and availability of protein rich, lower cost, healthier, more nutritious foods and sequester carbon.

    2. "Aromatics or benzene, toluene, xylene, in gasoline are the new lead," says the Environmental and Energy Study Institute's Carol Werner. Like lead octane's emissions, benzene and benzene based aromatic octane tailpipe emissions poison our children, environment, increase heart disease, cause cancers, birth defects etc costing our economy $billions annually. Contrary to oil's propaganda- Our ongoing, national blender pump demonstration assures E30 can be safely used in all autos. E30 can replace this aromatic octane and reduce its poisonous emissions, that prey especially on our smallest children, 50-80%

    Ethanol Leaders Hoodwinked-Children Lose

    ...........................................................................................................................

    Petroleum/EPA hoodwinked nearly all politicians and ethanol leaders into naively spreading their propaganda saying E30 is illegal for non-flex fuel autos.

    ..........................................................................................................................

    Ironically, in these past ten years millions of pioneering non-flex auto owners have repeatedly fueled with blender pumps' 94 octane premium blend E30. They typically report and research confirms more power, same mileage and saving $2-4/tank fill: No one has been fined for doing so.

    Those realities confirm the 1974 Clean Air Act Memorandum 1a's "reasonable basis for knowing" language makes fueling non-flex autos with E30 legal tampering: 1a reversed then current EPA tampering provisions saying citizens need EPA's preapproval before tampering:

    1a defines tampering as installing aftermarket non-OEM parts, add on systems or making any adjustments or alterations (like increasing fuel ethanol content) that change system parameters. This exhausting, nearly impossible preapproval process before tampering created uncertainty, chaos and unnecessary restraints on commerce.

    Stunningly! EPA's fix was enacting Memorandum 1a making all tampering acts legal!! ( like fueling higher blends in non-flex autos)..... If the citizen has "reasonable basis for knowing" emissions, emissions equipment/engines are not degraded: Then Its EPA's burden proving to the individual citizen he/she does not have reasonable basis for knowing, Skeptical? Google 1974 memorandum 1a pgs 2,3: 1977 addendum assures 1a language includes persons

    " Reasonable basis for knowing": Citizens are aware that for years pioneering non-flex auto owners have been fueling with blender pumps premium E30. They also are aware that replacing gasoline with ethanol is beneficial because gasoline is the source of toxic exhaust (benzene & related)emissions preying especially on their smallest children

    Joint active, major repudiation of petroleum/EPA's fraudulent claim that fueling non-flex autos with E30 is illegal will dramatically increase availability of blender pumps E30. Then nearly all auto owners can typically save $2-4/tank fill, increase power, and slash toxic benzene & related emissions while creating more local jobs.

    Both Flex and Non-Flex Vehicles Identicle Engines/fuel Systems

    Al Kasperson: The People's Myth Busting Professional Auto Tech Dept Head at Watertown, SD's Lake Area Technical Institute-now retired.

    Opinion: Free and open markets can transition our gasoline pool to automakers requested higher octane E30 gasoline pool because Al Kasperson's research busts the biggest oil industry myth. A myth echoed by Epa that non-flex fuel auto engines are different from designated flex fuel engines:(a)(b)(c) A myth that costs SD standard auto owners $200 million annually because they can save typically $10/tank fill simply legally filling with ethanol's premium blend E30. Check link (a) below for parts manuals report that flex and standard auto engines are the same.

    ..............................................................................................................................

    Note: Abrupt changes in ethanol content or the oxygen content of the fuel may trigger the check engine light in both flex and non-flex fuel autos. The computer needs time to 'learn' how to adjust engine parameters for the fuel being used. (a)

    ........................................................................................................................

    This myth effectively discriminates against standard auto owners to deny them access to much lower cost, higher octane premium E30. Since the engines are identical another Epa myth is shattered: Auto makers can not legitimately ignore the Magnuson-Moss warranty act (and they know it) to automatically void a standard auto owners warranty if he fuels with E30. They must first prove E30's additional ethanol content caused the problem. .

    Often both autos and the Oakridge National Laboratory refer to E30 as a super premium fuel: www1.eere.energy.gov/bioenergy/pdfs/b13_west_2-b.pdf Today E10 is up to fifty cents and e30 up to eighty cents less per gallon than unleaded.At a recent Energy Futures Coalition(Senator Tom Daschle co chairman) meeting auto makers consensus was that transition to a higher octane gasoline pool should be to Oakridge National Laboratory defined 'super' premium E30. It E30's lower volatility, higher octane, air cooling turbo charging effect make it a super premium today's autos also can take advantage of. .

    Auto makers need 93 octane fuels in order to market more efficient higher compression engines to remain viable in future auto markets plus meet future more stringent environmental standards. Automakers consensus was also that refiners preferred current benzene related octane enhancers would release far to many additional hazardous, polluting toxic emissions.

    This transition is possible because Al Kasperson knows parts manuals are the auto technicians' trusted look into reality along with tech manuals that guide them to get their job done. Al is the no nonsense people's expert at reading parts manuals and he found they tell the simple truth that engines are identical in both flex and standard autos. Al found parts manuals also reveal any small differences in parts and computer programs are for blends near E85 that require higher fuel flow. Click on below 'read more' for a summary of Al's detailed research and also reference Dr. Bruce Jones similar research or google -for flex fuel the future is now-

    Oil money intimidated auto makers interpret parts manuals in a manner to support their self serving profit agenda. Also political leaders, Epa regulators (evidenced by laws and misleading verbal statements), and ironically nearly all ethanol supporting organizations are too intimidated by big oil's money to say Al Kasperson is right: So why all the hair on fire hysteria about using in volatility specifications premium E30 in standard autos when out of volatility specifications, 87 octane regular E15 is considered OK?. It is easy to see why free and open auto fuels markets are crushed by uncontested Epa regulations and verbal statements: Statements creating myths that that misinform standard auto owners to keep them from freely selecting much lower cost,premium E30's more power and better fuel efficiency.

    Historical notes: In 1990 Al's common sense and his engine expertise told him if an engine is capable of operating on E10 it could successfully operate on E85. He consulted with other experts and set his first national precedent by putting the first nationally recognized operational E85 powered auto on the road: He simply fueled the SD Corn Growers standard 1988 Corsica with E85 specifically blended for him by a local service station because E85 simply was not on the market at that time.

    Designated flex fuel autos and E85 fuels were only in people's imaginations at the time. Al managed this research project that shocked the world. Al had at first installed several modifications and computer program changes an expert recommended. Al later removed them all as they malfunctioned, were not needed or original configuration and computer program were proven to work best overall..

    With Al's expertise guiding routine maintenance this nationally recognized popular standard auto's biggest problem was speeding tickets. The car's 104 mph publicized speeding ticket turned into a trophy attesting to the capability of any car to successfully operate on E85. Al's Auto Tech class dismantled the 1988 Corsica engine at 160,000 miles and found engine and fuel system parts very clean with little or no wear. Al's class found the same results with a standard 2005 Tahoe that was operated almost exclusively on E85 for 100,000 miles.

    Governor Bill Janklow(R): SD Ethanol's best Unrecognized Friend

    sdfu.org/saferair.net opinion

    My regular meetings with Governor Janklow

    Early 1984 as a complete political novice I (orrie swayze) began to write my first three or four letters to the editor ever and they challenged Janklow's press statements discrediting ethanol as fuel. Then just out of the blue the Governor personally called to invite me to the Governor's office for a discussion. Completely surprised I accepted what turned out to be the first of more than several invitations usually before every summer study committee meeting on ethanol incentives. Basically started a two year working relationship.

    . The first meeting was very cordial and my take away from the meeting was his comment: " You and your crowd make your case to me and I am with you". He kept his word

    As the summer study on SD ethanol incentive committee meetings began I would usually ride along (four hour trip) with my neighbor and key leader,Representative Kent Frerichs. Kent had invited my friend Dave Hallberg ,founding president of the Renewable Fuels Association, to Pierre previously. I was heavily involved in writing the purposed legislation so was usually invited to the Governor's office before each committee meeting with Jim Myers, transportation department head, always present. Hallberg founder/CEO of RFA was still president and they wanted to know "What does Hallberg say?": Dave usually spoke to the committee meetings by teleconference for 15-20 minutes answering questions.

    I have copy of a September 7, 1987 AP story that summarized the final summer study committee meeting: "SD began a a sharp turn in rural policy for a bill to subsidize ethanol through a sales tax on motor fuels(pipeline tax)"........." Rural democrats 'pushed hardest" for the plan and the main author is Orrie Swayze who says "This is really a tax for agriculture" he told the committee.

    Early in the process, after several meetings with the Governor and Jim Myers the transportation secretary doing most of the talking, I remarked "You sit here and ridicule ethanol in this conversation. I want you to go and tell the committee what you are telling me today so at least we can have an honest debate". Janklow said "Yes Jim will do that today".

    He never did. The Governor's office usually put out a press release after the committee meeting and I usually wrote an editorial that was often quite widely published. I did not refer to our conversations before the meeting but I did use some exact quotes from those conversations of each ridiculing the ethanol industry.

    I expected to be and was invited back to the Governor's office the very next meeting because they knew why those quotes were in the editorial: Before the summer study meetings they usually wanted to discuss Hallberg's counter, which I freely shared, to the ridiculing ethanol propaganda they were dishing out to the media.

    For me humorously, at the very next committee meeting I was invited in and we were having the same type of discussion and Janklow looked at me with a quick "You are not going to put that in the paper are you?". I told him I was not and reminded him why I did put the quotes in the paper. He nodded in agreement with an uncomfortable something like "ya,ya I know".

    Though an early critic Janklow is probably one of the best unrecognized friends the SD ethanol industry ever had because he kept his word. As he told Representative Kent Frerichs when he entered a joint session for his last major speech before departing from his first term after the legislation was in place: " Your are going to like what I have to say about ethanol".

    In my view he, admittedly quite persuasively, provoked a needed debate and made ethanol supporters prove ethanol's case to him. He was not going to be part of leading SD into a big ethanol scam. Later, when ever our paths crossed he always had a big smile, hand shake and some small talk. Especially when we were both standing in line at Mitchell opening to buy ethanol plant shares.
