Looks like Wildlife and Conservation will take another shot to the head. Growing corn for fuel is stupid.

EP1955g - This is another step on the road to energy independence. In. case you haven't noticed, our trade deficit and our federal deficit continues to grow, and a lot of that growth is tied to the import of foreign oil.

EP Consumers waste far more food than what is actually lost in the production of ethanol. In fact the amount wasted is greater than four times as much. So clean your plate and quit throwing food in the garbage. Not only is the food wasted that is thrown away but also all the energy that is embedded in that food. That's more energy lost than many countries use for all their energy needs.
