Home Energy Ethanol Reduces Greenhouse Gas Emissions SHARE Previous articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for January 13, 2016Next articleThe Next Big Thing is Very Small Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE By Gary Truitt – Jan 12, 2017 Corn ethanol achieves a 43 percent reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions when compared to the 2005 baseline for gasoline, according to a new analysis released today by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Based on current trends in crop production and ethanol production efficiency, the study projected that by 2022, corn-based ethanol will achieve a 50 percent reduction in GHG emissions compared to the gasoline baseline. The study was conducted by ICF International.Today’s announcement reaffirms the importance of ethanol and the Renewable Fuel Standard, said National Corn Growers Association President Wesley Spurlock, a farmer from Stratford, Texas.“Ethanol and the Renewable Fuel Standard are a true American success story. Corn farmers and ethanol producers are using less energy than ever before to produce cost-effective, clean and renewable fuel for consumers across the country and around the world. Today, USDA has reaffirmed what we already know: ethanol does more than just save consumers money at the gas pump, it’s also better for the environment.”The report also demonstrates the added GHG benefits of on-farm conservation practices including reduced tillage, nitrogen stewardship and cover crops-the same practices promoted by NCGA’s Soil Health Partnership Ethanol Reduces Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Meeting between Lionel Messi’s father Jorge and Barcelona president Josep Bartomeu ended without an agreement on Wednesday night and the Manchester City target will remain on strike. The meeting lasted for one and a half hours but Bartomeu remains determined to not let Messi go without a huge transfer fee and Messi’s father remains adamant that his son is a free agent. Diario Sport reported that Bartomeu attended the meeting with director Javier Bordas and Messi was accompanied by son Rodrigo and lawyer Jorge Pecourt. With no softening in the position of either party Messi will not return to training under new coach Ronald Koeman, underlining his emphatic insistence that he is no longer a Barcelona player after sending the club a burofax last week. Jorge had earlier been pictured getting out of a taxi having jetted in on Wednesday morning for the crunch talks to clarify Messi’s future. But it appears that both the club and Messi are no closer to reaching a resolution after Wednesday’s showdown concluded in a stalemate. Manchester City remains the most likely destination if Messi does sensationally depart the Nou Camp. However there is still some way to go before that move materialises, with Jorge saying: ‘I don’t know, there’s nothing yet’, when quizzed about his son’s future on Wednesday before the meeting. The face-to-face talks with Bartomeu were the first between both parties since Messi sent a burofax to the club, informing them he wants to leave this summer after spending the majority of his lifetime at the club having joined back in 2001. Even if, as seems inevitable, the divorce is acrimonious, many want Messi to remain part of the club even after he retires. Presidential candidate Victor Font told talkSPORT: ‘I’m truly hoping reason prevails and as soon as the club and Messi’s father sit down and talk, that the interest of both Messi and Barca will be taken into account and properly protected. ‘Even if that’s the case [Messi leaving], the ties between Messi and Barcelona are very deep; he came to the city 20 years ago, he’s been playing for this club all his life. ‘Messi is Barcelona, Barcelona is Messi, and what we need to ensure is that even if he leaves now these ties between Messi and Barcelona prevail,’ he added. The fans are understandably furious at how the situation has unravelled with their favourite son pushing to leave. And they were even more incensed with the forward’s image being used to promote the kits for the new season, one he may never wear competitively. The other Barcelona players recognise what a chaotic situation it has become with Messi still in the team Whatsapp group and Frenkie de Jong admitting to NOS: ‘Currently it’s a mess at Barcelona, so many strange things happening. It’s chaos. ‘I haven’t talked to him (Messi) about this myself. Nor the club. So I honestly do not know how it‘But if Messi really leaves, it will be a huge blow to the team and the club.’ read also:Don’t leave Barcelona bitter–T.B. Joshua warns Messi Jorge met with Bartomeu to convey his son’s interests, which those close to the Messi camp insist is a strong will to cut ties. Club legends Carlos Puyol, Xavi and Andres Iniesta were all given the opportunity to depart on their own terms. Bartomeu himself even said last year that Messi could leave this summer. The footballing world is following every detail of the saga and those at the Etihad are no doubt taking a keener interest than anyone.

Luiten bogeyed the opening hole but chipped in twice for birdie – on the sixth and 16th – and also holed from 40ft across the 17th green for another birdie to delight the large galleries. Jimenez, already the oldest winner in European Tour history after his win in the Hong Kong Open aged 48 and 318 days last November, carded 16 pars, one birdie and one bogey in his round, but fellow overnight leader Pablo Larrazabal slumped to a 77. Larrazabal’s round got off to a nightmare start with a triple-bogey seven on the first and although he birdied the seventh after a bogey on the fifth, a back nine of 38 ended his chances of a third European Tour title. McGrane, whose sole European Tour title to date in the 2008 China Open came in similar conditions, said: “It was really enjoyable, my short game was razor sharp which you need in tough conditions. I managed not to drop any shots all day which was a great achievement I am very content. “I enjoyed it only because I was able to hang in there and picked up a couple of birdies close to the end which turned it into a very good day. When the conditions get tough it falls back on chipping and putting and today I was pretty good at it. “Some of the holes are brutal, especially on the front nine, and when I weathered as far as number six I knew it would get a little easier. I’ve been showing reasonable form so I am looking forward to getting to this time tomorrow evening and see what it brings.” McGrane sits on eight under – two shots off the lead – alongside France’s Julie Quesne, with three-time winner Simon Dyson and fellow Englishman Oliver Fisher a shot further back after matching 71s. Holland’s Joost Luiten rewarded the home fans for braving some miserable conditions by claiming a narrow lead with a four-under-par 66 at Kennemer Golf Club to finish 10 under par, one ahead of overnight leader Miguel Angel Jimenez who battled to a level-par 70. Ireland’s Damien McGrane returned a flawless 67 to move into a share of third place after the third round of the KLM Open at Zandvoort. Press Association
