    Corn Ethanol Is Now a Climate-Change Scandal Posted to Energy September 08, 2016 by Robert Bryce The decade-old boondoggle that was aided and abetted from the get-go by big environmental groups, including the Union of Concerned Scientists and the Natural Resources Defense Council, has been exposed — again — as being worse for climate change than conventional gasoline.
