No matter how much the government extols them, we've warned you before that we're being conned about corn, and now a UN expert agrees and says that growing crops to produce biofuels is a "crime against humanity" that will bring on world hunger.
In BBC News, Grant Ferrett reports that UN expert Jean Ziegler says that the growth in the production of biofuels has already pushed the price of certain crops to record levels.
Ziegler has called for a 5 year ban on the production of biofuels because by that time, according to Ferrett, ?technological advances would enable the use of agricultural waste, such as corn cobs and banana leaves, rather than crops themselves to produce fuel.? In other words, we can burn our GARBAGE instead of our food.
