The dirty secret behind Obama's green power push

11/22/2013 - We here at Natural News have never understood the wisdom of burning up food supplies, which is one reason why we are vehemently opposed to the addition of ethanol in gasoline.

Burning up food prices: More corn going to ethanol production now than food production

8/19/2011 - The world has a food shortage. This isn't speculative or subjective, and it's not fear-mongering or alarmist.

The economic insanity of corn ethanol and government

5/19/2011 - For a White House that cheerleads about its commitment to renewable clean energy, President Obama has remained committed to the suicide policy set forth during George W. Bush's administration of burning our food for fuel. Say what you will about "green" alternatives to fossil fuels - there are some...

Gulf of Mexico "dead zone" caused by ethanol production

10/28/2010 - Ethanol, billed by Congress as a "green fuel," may be responsible for the second-largest dead zone in the world.

Why Ethanol Production Boosts E.Coli in Cattle

10/7/2009 - Emerging research is suggesting that in addition to boosting food prices, ethanol production may have another unintended consequence: higher E. coli infection rates in cattle.
