Some stories this Fall indicated that certain grains were in short supply thanks to Ethanol production. The farmer should get more for their efforts - as one of the few groups actually doing something worthwhile - but the damand doesn't seem to have made much difference. The fact is, there isn't much more Ethanol production available without starving someone. Some of the pie-in-sky ideas about Ethanol can't be realized unless someone started bulldozing lots of cities for the extra farmland. Nothing is going to replace oil. Not even nuclear - we are already way short on nuclear fuel production to take care of the existing plants... The only way out is massive cuts in consumption - huge changes in lifestyle - and living like we are already in a crisis in order to avoid falling off a very steep cliff.
