Ethanol Lobby: Fuel Trumps Hunger

Ethanol Lobby: Fuel Trumps Hunger

Here is some food for thought: The amount of grain needed to fill the tank of an SUV with ethanol just once can feed one person for an entire year. Another hard-hitting fact: The 107 million tons of grain that went to U.S. ethanol distilleries in 2009 was enough to feed 330 million people for one year at average world consumption levels, as stated in an article on Food Freedom’s website. Still think the federal government’s mandate of ethanol in vehicles is a good idea?
