Looking for link suggestions
I am looking for the perfect link for my tagline: Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, starving the poor one gallon of ethanol at a time. Fill your tank with E85 and cull a village
In the meantime I am using a link suggested by upcountrywater.
What I'm looking for in a link is something of shock value. I want to dramatize the catastrophic policy failure of Ethanol blending with gasoline upon the world's poor. Barack Obama is pushing the EPA to impliment the E15 standard for gasoline which represents a 50% increase from E10.
An exerpt from one of the links I'm considering: http://actionaidusa.org/assets/Interactive_map/
U.S. farmers have diverted 40 percent of corn production from food and feed to fuel, and land once used for soybean production has been converted to corn to meet the demand for biofuels set out in the federal RFS. Seven times as much corn is sent to ethanol plants than is being kept in our national stockpiles. Over the last two years, the amount of corn fed to livestock fell by 3 million metric tons, while corn shipments to ethanol producers grew by 33 million tons. These shifts put pressure on food stocks until they cross a tipping point, driving prices up.
