World Bank’s Wolfowitz wants US ethanol tariff to go

Joining those who call for a removal of the US ethanol tariff is, Paul Wolfowitz, the president of the World Bank, according to Ethanol Brasil.

Ethanol Brasil continues:

Wolfowitz called for the US to remove the ethanol tariff in a statement came at a conference in London on financing low-carbon energy, and it will increase the pressure on President George W. Bush to take action.

Wolfowitz, a former influential member of the Bush administration, also called for “a global framework” on cutting greenhouse gas emissions and for more aid to the poor for adapting to climate change.

This isn’t whine whine, any more than the US Brazil agreement was a win:win. This is a serious call from a serious former aide to Bush  for the Americans to get its trade position realigned.
