Cars Eat More Corn than do Animals

Corn production for ethanol has surpassed production for livestock feed and other food and non-food uses.

All along Interstate 90 in eastern North Dakota, the billboards tell you that burning ethanol is the patriotic thing to do. Maybe Tharaldson Ethanol, just down the road, paid for them.

NASCAR has jumped on the bandwagon too. Ethanol cannot make it without government subsidies and uses power and water far in excess of the power gained from it.
