Submitted by on July 7, 2017 – 5:08 pmNo Comment

by Dale McCall (Rocky Mountain Farmers Union/Brian Allmer Radio Network)  America’s farming communities are facing an economic crisis. Not since the 1980s have farm incomes declined so far so fast. The Wall Street Journal called it the “next American farm bust” and noted that rural communities are grappling with the steepest economic slide since the Great Depression.

Right now, the most precious of those opportunities may lie in renewable energy.

It’s a vital industry that already supports over 2,000 New Mexico jobs, generating over $100 million in wages.

Ethanol also replaces toxic additives in our gasoline supply, increasing octane without the health risk associated with chemicals like MTBE. Even better, for those raising livestock, ethanol production leaves nutrients and protein intact, generating vast quantities of high-quality animal feed.

America can’t afford to back away from its commitment to homegrown fuels. American farmers are counting on Senator (Tom) Udall and his colleagues in Congress to stand strong against those working to gut the RFS. READ MORE
