Look-- biodiesel was green when it was made out of grease. But corn? Corn saves you 3% less carbon than oil. Ridiculous.
Corn is not a fuel-- it is a food. Yet because farmers are dedicating so much corn to fuel-- feed costs for animals including us are going up.
Hats off to Corporate Ag -- ADM and Co. for getting great subsidies from US citizens and profiting from corn as fuel.
Time for a big investment in solar, wind and wave.
