Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I believe that current US corn ethanol production relies entirely on government subsidies for the various profit margins along the way while driving up the cost of corn as human food and as a feedstock for livestock. It may be a triumph for lobbying but it is a disaster as policy.
