21st Century science should be good science, but it isn’t. Climategate scientists prove that money talks. This opinion piece from the Wall Street Journal documents how man-made global-warming theorists have been manipulating data in their efforts to maintain funding of pet projects. Given that such theories provide a fundamental justification for the pursuit of “renewable” energy such as ethanol, the fallout from this international scandal could — and should — lead to reconsideration of the EISA 2007 mandates for ethanol production, the reason that a supply of lead-free aviation fuel is rapidly disappearing in the U.S.
The GAfuels Blog is written by three private pilots concerned about the future availability of fuels for piston-engine aircraft. They are:
- Dean Billing (Sisters, Ore.) – an expert on autogas and ethanol
- Kent Misegades (Cary, N.C.) – an aerospace engineer and aviation journalist
- Todd Petersen (Minden, Neb.) – former aerial applicator and owner of more than 150 Mogas STCs for aircraft
