In 1996, a book titled THE CIGARETTE PAPERS rocked the world. It exposed what many people knew, what many people talked about for years...that tobacco smoking is deadly, and how the tobacco industry manipulated politicians, the media, and the medical community to spread their lies.

THE ETHANOL PAPERS is meant to also rock the world and counter the continuous lies and disinformation spread by the oil industry. THE ETHANOL PAPERS is a rough-and-tumble, no holds-barred examination of the ethanol vs. gasoline conflict. Written in plain jargon, simple enough that even brain-washed scientists, academics, and politicians can understand. Yet this is no "Idiots Guide to Biofuels" or “Alt Fuels for Dummies.” Rather, THE ETHANOL PAPERS is the most in-depth and complete explanation of the ethanol-oil problem, targeted for smart people who demand the truth.
