Ethanol Kills

We all know (because Al Gore put it in a slide show) that global warming might lead to starvation in third world countries in a hundred years or so. But anti-global warming policy is leading to starvation right now. The government-mandated demand for ethanol is driving up the cost of grain to catastrophic levels:

“The reality is that people are dying already,” said Jacques Diouf, of the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). “Naturally people won’t be sitting dying of starvation, they will react,” he said.

The UN says it takes 232kg of corn to fill a 50-litre car tank with ethanol. That is enough to feed a child for a year. Last week, the UN predicted “massacres” unless the biofuel policy is halted.

    Great fact! check out the blog titled “The cute little cure that killed us all” and let me know if you have any improvements or suggestions. Spread the word that ethanol is not a viable option.

    Fascinating domain; I’ve got one in an identical niche but it is more specific than this. Have you noticed that more plain looking domain names work better or do specific ones? My research says targeted, but I know individuals that believe the domain name alone is not all that essential. Whats your opinion? Fantastic content by the way, and i’m sorry if this question is a bother.
