Government has a role in addressing serious, credible public safety threats, but those regulations should be based on hard science, not trendy political causes and speculative dogma. It's amusing that environmentalists must now pick their poison — if they want to address climate change with ethanol fuel mandates, they're effectively endorsing use of the pesticide that they believe causes cancer.

When politicians try to mandate consumer changes without concern for science or market realities, even a phony solution to a speculative problem can have negative real-world consequences.
