"Experts say Climate Change is going to lower Corn yields while almost ignoring that Ethanol is a problem. (Aurvant)

Well, they say we're going to have less corn, but that Ethanol ball is going to keep right on rolling.

So, scientists are claiming that the the impending destruction brought on by the rampant, out-of-control "don't look now the boogeymans coming", man-made climate change is going to think out our yields in the corn industry because of rapidly increasing temperatures.

U.S. corn output dips and rises from year-to-year but has risen
overall as farmers use new seeds and fertilizers to maximize growth.

But output of the corn crops grown today could fall as much as much
as 5 percent in coming decades as expected higher temperatures brought
on by greenhouse gas emissions cause droughts and weaken plants,
scientists said in a U.S. Department of Agriculture report released on

Hmmm....that sounds drastic. If that was indeed true then you would think that they would focus on keeping Corn as a food source, but the simple fact of the matter is that they aren't. They'll just keep right on converting that valuable commodity in to a worthless piece of fuel that has proven to cause more problems than it solves.

Food crisis anyone?

If man-made Global Warming was an irrefutable fact (which there are tons of evidence these days to show that it is shaky theory at best) and we were going to actually have a percentage loss in supply of corn then would it not be logical to abandon the process of destroying a food source to make fuel? Surely, food and survival comes before environmentalism? Right? Riiiight?


I guess the answer to that question is "Do they even care"? Because, obviously, despite the recent rise in food prices, numerous countries rioting over the availability of corn products (or just food in general), and now our own limited ability to buy food here in the States, they are adamant about using ethanol to "save the planet".

Regardless of how hungry or financially broken we become.
