Guys in my coffee group bad mouth ethanol because of the argument that it drives up the cost of food and wouldn't be produced at all without government subsidies. I try to counter while it's not perfect in it's present form that the development of celulose or kelp technology (with ocean water in process) will eventually be an efficient method of producing fuel to replace our dependence on foreign oil but they still think it's a joke. Any good web sites or info I could use to counter their point?
Look at ADM's website. They have articles that present good reasons for using corn for ethanol. Also, the process does not use all of the corn's food value. There is cattle feed left over after the ethanol is removed.
