    End the Ethanol Madness

    7/24/12 By Jeffrey Folks

    As for the president, he has steadfastly ignored the impending crisis. He probably figures that in the run-up to the election, voters do not need to be advised that his party's ethanol policies have been responsible for food inflation. When he is not ignoring the problem, he is lying about it, with his administration refusing to deny that climate change is responsible for the present localized weather conditions. Yes, George Bush's failure to sign the Kyoto Climate Accord is responsible for the present drought. Bush caused this year's drought (and those of 1988, 1956, and 1936 as well). He also caused the global warming of the Medieval Climate Optimum (950-1250 AD) and the frigid temperatures of the Little Ice Age (1350-1850).

    The crucial point is that Obama's environmental policies have put the country's food supply at risk. Anyone with common sense knows that burning 40% of the nation's corn crop (and proposing to burn the entire crop, as increasing mandates would do) to satisfy ethanol mandates is madness. Yet Obama has consistently supported the ethanol program along with impractical mandates for biofuel and other alternatives.

    US Drought Impacts Global Food Security
    August 08, 2012: The United States is the leading producer of corn and soybeans – two commodities that developing countries rely on. However, over the past two months, prices have risen sharply as the U.S. experiences its worst drought since the 1950s. A food policy expert says effectively responding to the drought can help prevent another global food crisis

    Are you dumb or stupid? it's ethanol.....it raises the food prices, therefore your environmental policies, created a "regressive" tax on the poor and middle class because food prices have shot up......or do they not mention that on Huffington Post? Diversify your sources, it's a big world out there
