<b>How Biofuels Could Starve the Poor</b>

Summary: Thanks to high oil prices and hefty subsidies, corn-based
ethanol is now all the rage in the United States. But it takes so
much supply to keep ethanol production going that the price of corn -
- and those of other food staples -- is shooting up around the
world. To stop this trend, and prevent even more people from going
hungry, Washington must conserve more and diversify ethanol's
production inputs.
