    Sugar tastes better anyway.

    Ethanol is a crock of *&$( though and we need to drop it from our energy plan entirely.

    Corn is also the main foodstuff we feed our cows at the commercial farms. And c'mon, let's be real, anything that has the word "fructose" in the ingredients label is going to be affected.

    Yet another brilliant proposal from this democratic regime. Crap.

    Obama energy policy = push main breaker of your service panel to OFF.

    The Brazilians have it right with sugar cane based ethanol. Much more energy content and no rise in prices because you have corn to clean up the slack.

    I would never defend anything Obama says or does under any circumstances he's a worthless piece of Shiite in my book, so here are a few facts.

    In 2005, the U.S. produced 42 percent of the world’s corn. Over 50 percent of the U.S. crop is produced in Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska or Illinois. Other states in which corn is grown include Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Wisconsin, South Dakota, Wisconsin and Missouri. In 2005, over 58 percent of the U.S. corn crop was used for feed. The remaining U.S. crop was split between exports (25 percent) and food, seed or industrial uses such as ethanol production (17 percent).
    The production can easily be increased and truth is a slight reduction of the sweeteners in soda would even be noticed.

    Corn is not the best crop to use by a long shot.

    The following was taken from Scientific American
    Grass Makes Better Ethanol than Corn Does: Scientific American
    Switchgrass ethanol delivers 540 percent of the energy used to produce it, compared with just roughly 25 percent more energy returned by corn-based ethanol according to the most optimistic studies.

    Well that is good to know that you can never defend anything the President does.

    But for the actual article I am glad to see pushes for alternative fuel, but I do not think corn based is the right way to go. Maybe we can learn from Brazil because sugar for them seems to be doing pretty well.

    Where in the USA do you think they should increase production of sugar cane?
