It's time to move away from the corn based ethanol 11/05/2010 @ 9:41am Well, all I can say is that corn ethanol is definitely pushing up the price of all major row crops and thus causing increased food prices around the world. Even a child can understand this. Corn ethanol is essentially subsidzed moonshine that is terribly inefficient to produce and is causing massive environmental damage around the world. The end result is that the world’s poor and the environment are being damaged. The ag community needs to end the charade and ban ethanol produced from food feedstocks like corn. We need to move to advanced cellulosic ethanol production based on non-food feedstocks like grass, sawdust and food waste. The ag community needs to stop promoting and defending corn based ethanol (which gets 2/3rds the mileage of gasoline) along with its enormous subsidies.
