An average car running 10% ethanol removes as many calories from the food chain in a year as it would take to keep two people alive for that same year. That is the caloric value of the ethanol consumed by the engine.

I don't care for the ethanol in fuel, but it is tough to claim that was removed from the food chain. More corn is grown because of the ethanol demand and much of it first is processed for cattle feed (DDG) and the remainder used for fuel.

How many people do you figure are kept alive by corn starch?

I look at it that every time I burn a tank of gasoline with ethonol (being forced to do so by the liberal asshat moonbat social degenerates) I am killing a “less fortunate” person in some underdeveloped country. Great...liberal schmucks afe making me a murderer. Just great!
