I guess I will be eating subsidized and artificially mandated biodiesel for breakfast instead of corn flakes for breakfast. It will be cheaper.

Around 1984, the Jews in Israel realized, that they were using an equal amount of water to the annual flow of the Nile River to produce food, which they were sending to the Arabs in Egypt. It takes 1400 cubic meters of water to produce one ton of corn, which is not figured into the cost of the ethanol. Water is the more valuable mineral, which will possibly cause a future war between Colorado and California.
However, is it more valuable to get the vote of the Midwest
politicians?
