Tell the epa to deny waiver petition to allow e15

BLUERIBBON COALITION ACTION ALERT!

TELL THE EPA TO DENY WAIVER PETITION TO ALLOW E15

The increase in Ethanol in Fuel Blends has not had scientific testing!

Attention Action Alert Subscriber,

The alert concerns BRC members and supports who have marine engines (this means boats and Personal Water Craft (PWC) owners). Please take action today!

As you may know, a pro-ethanol lobbying organization called Growth Energy and 54 ethanol manufacturers recently submitted a formal petition to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requesting a waiver under the Clean Air Act to increase ethanol blend levels in gasoline up to 15 percent (E15) by volume. As is required by law, the EPA on April 21 published a Notice for Comment in the Federal Register, beginning a 30-day public comment period that closes on May 21, 2009. There is enormous political pressure on federal agencies to allow a high blend level despite well-known problems with mid-level ethanol gasoline.

We are asking all interested parties to submit comments to the EPA arguing that the waiver petition be denied. Although the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) has been working with the EPA and Department of Energy (DOE) to initiate testing on marine engines and equipment and has formally submitted a test plan for our sector, there has been no testing to date by any federal agency on the impacts of mid-level ethanol blends on marine products. As you all know, marine engines are designed and certified to run on not more than E10, the current legal allowable blend limit. Increasing the limit will likely bring marine engines out of compliance with federal clear air laws, damage marine engines due to higher temperatures, pose safety risks to boaters and sportsmen and likely mean warranties will be voided.

We ask you to support a science-first approach and urge the EPA to deny the ethanol industry's E15 waiver request unless and until independent and comprehensive scientific testing is completed on a full range of marine engines and other products.

CLICK HERE to send comments (due before May 21) directly to the EPA. It doesn't have to take more than one minute. If you have a little more time and can customize your letter, it will make your message even stronger. NMMA - Government Center

Thanks you for taking action before the May 21, 2009 deadline,

Jack Welch

    • Request For Feedback From Our Members

      Over the past year, we have made some significant updates to QUADCRAZY and have focused on the forum mostly, since it is the most active part of this community. We've also updated our gallery section so members can easily share photos, added a downloads section for members to share things such as ATV manuals, added a leaderboard and a reputation system. In addition to that, there have been many changes to how members access QUADCRAZY, especially on mobile screens. We've also added login integration with popular social networks such as facebook and twitter. We've made it easier to post, message members, and manage memberships. QUADCRAZY launched as a much simpler website back in 2014 and 13 years later, we re still at it. In that time, many users have moved on and many new users have joined. The challenge for sites like this is to keep them current and draw members back to contribute and participate when the big social networks take up more of that "online time" these days. We have some cool new features planned for September that will bring in things like: Copy and Paste into the editor when typing. Better embedding within posts using just urls (we already auto embed from some sites and our own content). A new recent topics view for the forum. Fluid forum view. New reactions to content to complement the like button. Device management so you manage how you login to QUADCRAZY. ATV Clubs where are members will be able to start their own clubs (public or private) with their own forum. What we would like to know from our members is what to improve, what to add, etc. What do you like and/or dislike? Would you like to see additional website colors/themes, different website layout, maybe wider? Do we need other forum sections, do we need other community sections? Things like this we are interested in hearing about and if its something that can be done to make this place better for everyone, maybe we can do it.  So please feel free to post in this topic, your feedback of our ATV community. 😁
