I never in my life thought I would be looking towards Fidel Castro for ethical words about economy and renewable resources, but just as he has suprised the world by remaining in power all these years, he has suprised us again by writing a deathbed manifesto on the evils of corn based ethanol. His country may be suffering from the rising price of corn, but we all will be suffering from the negative benefit of corn based biofuels. It all sounds good, but when one considers how much petrol based energy goes into the production of corn based energy, it begins to make less sense.

from Ronald Cooke.
