This post is an update to http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=090_1339984459 originally posted yesterday, 6/17/12, by LL user thinkslaughter (who has blocked me since I have a pesky habit of posting facts exposing lies of right wing propagandists). The item at the link above was given the title:
"Left Wing Marxist Cocaine Addict Bill Maher OWNED HARD by George Will! LOL!"
And then there is the description: "Bill Maher is a D list rat faced cocaine fiend desperate to remain in the spotlight after a failed media career..." a typical ad hominem attack strategy used when an individual does not have facts or logic on their side in a debate.
The FACT is, Bill Maher was 100% correct regarding his comments on Brazil and their 1970's Ethanol program to tremendously reduce their dependence on oil. He was not "owned hard" by George Will, much less owned at all. But thinkslaughter and his crowd have little use for facts. Since many of us do care about facts, I now present them.
FACTS: With the 1973 oil crisis, the Brazilian government initiated in 1975 the Pró-Álcool program. The Pró-Álcool or Programa Nacional do Álcool (National Alcohol Program) was a nation-wide program financed by the government to phase out all automobile fuels derived from fossil fuels in favour of ethanol. The program successfully reduced by 10 million the number of cars running on gasoline in Brazil, thereby reducing the country's dependence on oil imports.
Ethanol fuel is produced from sugar cane. Brazil has the largest sugar cane crop in the world, Brazil is the world's second largest producer of ethanol fuel and is the largest exporter of ethanol in the world.
