we will again
it doesn%26#039;t matter how much it costs to produce the cars or the ethenol, the point is that it is renewable. I don%26#039;t care that ethenol is 30% less efficient than petroleum, yknow why? Cause I can grow more ethenol ! If we stopped growing poppies over in the middle east and started growing CORN, then they wouldn%26#039;t starve. I have no symp[athy for someone who complains their hand is bleeding when they continue to stab it with an ice pick. They answer is in front of us but we don%26#039;t like change. If you don%26#039;t want to change quit complaining! The argument that poeple are starving because we want to use crops for fuel is STUPID... GROW MORE FOOD NOW! How can we complain ethenol MIGHT take food from the hungry when we don%26#039;t grow food to feed the hungry now? 0% 0 Votes

American grocery stores are starting to introduce food rationing. Wal Mart is restricting the amount of rice customers can buy. In Mexico and Yemen, in Egypt and Indonesia, the poor are taking to the streets to protest massive rise in food prices as well as shortages. A short distance from our shores, the troubled nation of Haiti is in crisis again; Haitians, dependent on U.S. grain imports, have seen those dry up and have been reduced to eating cakes of dirt.
How did this come about? Because on top of rises in energy prices and some changes in the diets of developing world countries, we are burning a large portion of the world%26#039;s food crop in our cars’ fuel tanks, in the name of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and curing our %26quot;addiction to oil.%26quot; 40% 2 Votes
