Former U.S. General discuses future of ethanol at DNC

He supports its use over importing oil from overseas

PHILADELPHIA, Pa - The future of ethanol's use could change depending on who is elected president. Local 4's Sabrina Ahmed has been covering the DNC all week. On Wednesday she spoke with a former U.S. General at the event about his view on ethanol.
 
"You know what they should say below the no ethanol border? 'no ethanol! Send your money to Venezuela' because that's what it is. We're spending hundreds of billions of dollars a year importing oil and some cases refined products so we can burn it in our cars and spew in out in the exhaust. Why not keep that money here where is circulates in the economy? For health reasons, for environmental reason, national security, economic, we need to use more biofuels and ethanol and that means staying with that renewable fuel standard," said former U.S. Army General Wesley Clark.
 
Clark works for Growth Energy, a bipartisan group that travels the country supporting ethanol but he is a Hillary Clinton supporter.
