Gas and Food. Not that kind of gas.

Check out the video below. It is from Good Magazine and sums up the issue with gas prices and rising food costs very well. I think the issue is very timely during this election cycle. Corn is a poor choice for making ethanol, the cell walls are thick and harder to break down and it takes a long time to grow. We should be investigating faster growing, thinner cell walled crops like grasses. But neither candidate is going to touch that third rail since the farm lobby is strong. Anyway, take a look at the video and think about the solutions the candidates are putting forward.
