Raising voices about corn ethanol

Food & Water Watch, the Network for Energy Choices and the Institute for Energy and the Environment at Vermont Law School are on the quest of creating a report called "The Rush to Ethanol: Not all BioFuels are created equal". They affirm that, "ethanol is no silver bullet solution for fossil fuel dependence, energy independence or curbing emissions".

So the organisers' intention is to create a comprehensive report on the implications of corn ethanol, because that's were the taxpayers' money is going to, while "citizens are promised that they will be driving switchgrass-based ethanol" in the following years. This report will be sent as a recommendations for the US biofuels policy for the 2007 Farm Bill.
