NCPA’s H. Sterling Burnett and I recently released a brief analysis (not yet online) on the environmental costs of ethanol. A couple of outlets are starting to pick up on the analysis–even though it’s not what many want to hear.
Last year Sterling and I produced a similar publication on how agriculture subsidies devastate the world’s poorest people. So as Congress gears up to renew the Farm Bill with all its ethanol pork and agri-corporate welfare, we should consider both the costs to the environmental costs and to poor people.
(It’s another example of how environmentalists don’t really care about the poor.) -Max Borders
