Ethanol in your cars or feed a hungry world?

The federal moonshiners outdid themselves
For food in the store disappears from the shelves.
We stoppped exporting corn
To a hungry world’s scorn.
We can’t even grow enough corn for ourselves.

40% of our corn crop is being diverted to ethanol production. That means that much less food to feed a hungry world. With drought in China, floods in Australia and South America, frost in Mexico and elsewhere, and an unstable world situation, what are we thinking? The food prices are skyrocketing even faster than the oil prices (for now). See the following charts.
