Biofuels are an accelerant to our own demise. This article is one of many that highlight how the rush to supplant our petroleum supply with ethanol, etc., creates more problems than they fix. Curbing use should be our primary concern, followed closely by developing truly clean energy (solar, wind, …). I appreciate that the geo-political turmoil from oil imports is a serious problem that we need to address. However, ethanol development merely drains resources that should go the the aforementioned goals. Money, manpower, and our own natural resources have more important causes than taking from your plate to feed your gas tank. Even ethanol production that does not use “food” still consumes copious amounts of water, land, minerals from the soil, and often fossil fuels that have better direct uses.
