The Problem With Biofuels

 

In recent years ethanol blends and other biofuels made from corn have made huge inroads into U.S. energy markets. But just how eco-friendly is corn-based ethanol? The costs associated with this not so green form of energy far outweigh the benefits. The rapid increase in corn production for ethanol has caused corn prices to skyrocket, added to the national debt and actually increased our carbon footprint.

 

A one-way flight from N.Y. to London would require a year's worth of corn from 30 football fields.

 

It takes approximately 129 gallons of fossil fuel to produce 100 gallons of ethanol.
