US biofuel production should be suspended, UN says
Under US law, 40% of the corn harvest must be used to make biofuel, a quota which the UN says could contribute to a food crisis around the world.
Stand by for an outrageous outrage as the wing nuts start claiming the U.N. is trying to seize U.S. Crops.
(Edit 08/11/2012) Surprisinly enough. This hasn’t happened. In fact, there have been a couple who actually agree.
BTW, this was brought up at todays W.H. Presser. Reporter asked Carney if the W.H. was going to suspend/waive this requirement to keep food prices down. He was directed to ask the USDA and EPA for further information.
