More is Not Enough says Indiana Ethanol Industry

first_img By Gary Truitt – May 20, 2016 Previous articleSoybean Growers Call on Congress to Get to Work on TPPNext articleMorning Outlook Gary Truitt More is Not Enough says Indiana Ethanol IndustryBeth elliottOn the eve of the Indiana Ethanol forum, the EPA released its proposal for the level of ethanol that can be blended into the nation’s fuel supply in 2017. The renewable fuel volume requirement at 14.8BG is 700 million gallons above the 2016 level, but still short of what is called for in the Renewable Fuels Standard. Beth Elliott with the National Corn Growers Association stated, “The level does not match the RFS, so in our minds they are still breaking the law.” NCGA has filed a lawsuit against the EPA over the 2016 levels, and Elliott told HAT they will likely do so over the 2017 numbers as well.Speaking at the 2016 Indiana Ethanol Forum, Elliott says the EPA stopped short of what the RFS calls for because they don’t believe corn farmers can grow that much corn or that the ethanol industry can produce that much fuel, “There are some pencil pushers at EPA who just can’t reason with themselves that we can produce that much renewable fuel.” She said, with more and more e-15 pumps coming on line each day and corn yields increasing, there is no problem with breaking through the so-called blend wall and producing more renewable fuel.The proposed rule is now in a comment period. Elliott believes with enough comments from farmers the agency will have to up their proposed level and comply with the law, “They do read the comments, and I think we are so close we can push the agency to meet the 15 billion gallons called for by the RFS.”Meanwhile, Indiana Senator Joe Donnelly is spearheading legislation that would remove restrictions allowing fuel retailers to sell E-15 gasoline all year long. Elliott says, currently, they can only sell E-15 for 9 months, “This is an exciting piece of legislation, one that is focused on consumer choice.”  Since it does not involve the RFS, she is optimistic some lawmakers who oppose the RFS will still support this legislation. Michael Ackerman, a fuel retailer in Jasper, IN, said being able to sell E-15 all year long will make it much easier for other retailers to make the change and start offering E-15 fuel.Elliott told the Forum there is considerable opposition to ethanol and to corn in Washington and that agriculture faces an uphill fight to get more renewable fuel into the marketplace.

“Friend of Thailand” calls for release of Chinese journalist held in Bangkok

first_imgNews Follow the news on Thailand Red alert for green journalism – 10 environmental reporters killed in five years May 12, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Help by sharing this information CheckpointConscience holidayBy Jos van NoordIn many holiday destinations, human rights are a subject reserved for political exchanges and nothing else. Citizens who hold certain views and people who are just themselves – gypsies, gays, Christians, Jews, artist or aborigenals– are treated like garbage in these countries, or worse. Do you take this into consideration when choosing your holiday destination? Email me!Jos van NoordMany African countries consider human rights only a luxury issue for westerners, who themselves in the past were not bothered too much about it. Most distant governments swear without blinking that everything is fine in their own country. But if we take China, for example, we see that it is ruled by an arbitrary dictatorship, pure and simple. And what to think of Eastern Europe? Of people like Lukashenko?In the fairly macho Netherland Antilles, gays and lesbians are not welcome. Like the Copts in Egypt! For my part, I have decided to stay away from Thailand, regardless of its popularity, for as long as its authorities continue to detain the Chinese journalist Sun Shucai for no reason. I was named a Friend of Thailand by the government in Bangkok but perhaps it is time to politely return this title.My colleague Shucai, who like myself calls a spade a spade and defends dissidents, could no longer safely stay in China. He fled to Thailand, but he has been held a prisoner for the past six months under inhuman conditions in a prison camp known in Bangkok as the Suan Phlu Immigration Detention Centre.This is an outrage, the man is 87!Indivuduals have no rights in Thailand, letters to ministers remain unanswered. Sun Shucai, accused of overstaying his visa, should not be have been imprisoned at all since he has the documented status of a UN refugee and his visa for the United States is currently being processed. Thailand does not give a hoot about refugee conventions, mainly because they are not in its interest, and because Thais in general, do not have much compassion with refugees.While holiday makers spend their time on the beach without a care in the world, as if they were refugees from the the grey skies back home, this very old dissident languishes in cell 1 DC under the number 43122, with hundreds of others who are not considered model tourists. What should be done? Where does your conscience take a holiday? Or do you prefer to leave it at home? Send me an email to [email protected] of the comments that readers post underneath Van Noord’s article will also be made available by Reporters Without Borders soon. News Reporters Without Borders reiterates its call for the release of Sun Shucai, an 87-year-old Chinese activist and journalist who fled to Thailand in November 2006 and has been detained by the Thai authorities in Bangkok since December 2010.The press freedom organization welcomes an opinion piece that Dutch journalist Jos van Noord wrote last week for the Amsterdam-based daily De Telegraaf, voicing outrage about Sun’s detention and urging readers to say what they think. In 2002, the Thai government awarded Van Noord the title of “Friend of Thailand” because of the many positive articles he has written about the country.“We are increasingly concerned about Sun’s health,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The conditions in which he is being held are still very poor and efforts to have him released seem to be making no progress. We urge the Thai authorities, who have no interest in prolonging his detention, to be lenient with him. His only crime was to seek refuge when his fight for human rights exposed him to reprisals in China.”Sun was arrested on 8 December 2010, when the Thai police raided the Bangkok building where he and many immigrants lived. Sun should not have been among those arrested because he had a UN Refugee Agency document stating that it was considering his request for protection and resettlement. The next day, a judge fined him and ordered him held in a Bangkok immigration detention centre pending possible deportation to China.Sun’s political activism goes back to the 1950s. He first got into serious trouble with the Chinese authorities in 1956, when he was sentenced to 14 years in prison for criticising the Maoist revolution. He continued to write articles critical of the Communist Party, some of which were published in Beijing Spring, a Chinese dissident magazine based in New York.
