There was a story on NPR this morning regarding ethanol. I found an interesting article on line about how ethanol from corn is a bad thing. And I am still reading the Omnivore's Dilemma about corn. After all that, and living with my husband who knows a thing or two about it, I must pass this opinion on.
It just doesn't make sense to use corn to make ethanol. It will drive the cost up for farmers, which in turn, will make food more expensive for us. It costs more to make ethanol from corn than it does to make gasoline from petroleum. Think about it. Maybe sugar cane should be the answer. Why is there such a push to use corn to make ethanol?
