Millions of people around the world are sick and dying due to starvation and malnourishment. Americans are partly to blame as we use millions of bushels of corn to make ethanol gasoline. That makes corn and other foods more expensive and scarce. That is wrong. We should stop doing that and just use gasoline for awhile or import ethanol from South America or start using sugar cane grown in America to make ethanol. We subsidize ethanol heavily, making farmers wealthy, so the lobbyists will probably prevail and people will continue to starve to death. Sad!
