- If every acre of the country's corn production was put towards ethanol production it would only cover 12% of the necessary fuel in the country. Ethanol is not a cure all but would definitely decrease petroleum use.

This article brings up the fact that along with the increase in the price of corn, the prices of other crops have increased because they are more scarce due to lack of farming land given up to corn, similarly the price of animals has increased because it is more expensive to feed them.

http://www.newfarm.org/features/0804/biofuels/index.shtml

 

This site describes how any farm can enjoy huge benefits from a small scale, on farm, distillery. You can make fuel for your tractors right from crops that otherwise might not be sold for whatever reason. It also talks about how even though corn is the most commonly thought of source of ethanol, switchgrass can produce nearly twice the yield.

This article discusses how the "biofuel boom" has and will continue to impact corn prices in the United States. Since industrial Mexico is so reliant on corn imports from the US for livestock feed and food processing, they will be forced to pay a much higher price for this product. Impoverished Mexicans who rely on tortillas as a major food source will not be able to afford the raised fees associated with this surge. END

This website actually saves energy becuase it uses a black background so it doesn't have to use more energy for lighter colors.

This site talks about alternate energy resources

I thought that this website was really informative because not only does it give recent articles about alternative energy sources, but it also provides information on how to use alternative energy and save on non renewable resources.
