    Corn Ethanol corruption starves at least 196,000 people to death each and every year

    So who is your god?

    We clearly disagree on the nature of God. Why do you believe your god supports corn ethanol corruption?

    Corn ethanol creates no energy so is not sustainable. It can be replaced by direct conversion of Domestic natural gas thereby avoiding starving at least 200,000 human beings to death each year. Direct conversion also lowers cost, emissions and reduces total energy consumption. It creates excellent American jobs and also enhances our national security.

    My goodness you are on a natural gas board with the solution. Why would any one be interested in your children of the corn faith?

      • Why do you insist on playing the clown? It is not clever, amusing or cute.

        Just ignorant, irresponsible and yes - evil. You are gambling with other human beings lives, at best. Hard hear and mean spirit is the Progressive way.

        October 15 News: World Grain Reserves ‘At A Very Low Level, Leaving No Room’ For Extreme Weather, Warns UN

        By Stephen Lacey on Oct 15, 2012 at 8:06 am

        World grain reserves are so dangerously low that severe weather in the United States or other food-exporting countries could trigger a major hunger crisis next year, the United Nations has warned. [Guardian]


        Failing harvests in the US, Ukraine and other countries this year have eroded reserves to their lowest level since 1974. The US, which has experienced record heatwaves and droughts in 2012, now holds in reserve a historically low 6.5% of the maize that it expects to consume in the next year, says the UN.

        “We’ve not been producing as much as we are consuming. That is why stocks are being run down. Supplies are now very tight across the world and reserves are at a very low level, leaving no room for unexpected events next year,” said Abdolreza Abbassian, a senior economist with the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). With food consumption exceeding the amount grown for six of the past 11 years, countries have run down reserves from an average of 107 days of consumption 10 years ago to under 74 days recently.

    • obviously, part of a fiendish plot to reduce corn consumption.

    • you are killing this board with your posting.........................................congrats
