Ethanol

Did you know that the grain it takes to fill the tank of a sports utility vehicle with ethanol could feed one person for a year?!

The government is subsidizing farmers to grow more corn and soybeans. I overheard at a local wild bird store that was closing down that less fields are being planted in the plant varieties needed for food, not just bird seed, but us humans.

100 million tons of food will be diverted this year to feed cars.
