Beyond the Corn Field: Balancing Fuel, Food and Biodiversity
Corn ethanol is the worst ineffective, non-green, heavy tax payer subsidy fuel scheme imaginable.
It takes over one acre of corn to produce just one gallon of ethanol.
Economically this is completely out of whack without tax payer subsidies by the farm bill from the pork barrel corn growers. There is no reason for nuclear power or OPEC to be used at all. This is another bamboozle for the OPEC and oil interests.

ScienceDaily (Feb. 18, 2010) — The development of alternative fuel will greatly benefit the U.S., say scientists in an Energy Foundation-funded report published February 16 by the Ecological Society of America (ESA), the nation’s largest organization of ecological scientists. However, in order to effectively reap the social and economic benefits of biofuel production, U.S. policies need to address potential effects of land-use choices on our ecosystems.
