Pending global food crisis – Due to corn and Ethanol

An excellent article which reiterates the point, that food prices are going up, because of corn being diverted from human consumption to ethanol production.

The amount of corn it takes to produce 75 litres of ethanol– roughly a tank of fuel– is enough corn to feed one person on a 2,000-calorie-a-day diet for a year

Of course, the Iowa Corn Promotion Board will be right there saying it’s not their fault.
