Gusher of Lies gushes lies

Robert Zubrin writes a scathing critique Robert Bryce’s recent anti-energy independence book “Gusher of Lies”, including this nugget:

[Bryce's] estimate of the amount of water used to produce corn ethanol — are off by a factor of over 400. (He says 885 gallons of water per gallon of ethanol; the actual industry figure is 2, since corn used for ethanol is not irrigated.)

Now that’s a pretty big boo-boo, but hey, the OPEC apologist Defenders of the Status Quo will try anything.
