Food prices to rise as biofuel demand grows



One thing to note in this article is that they're talking mostly about corn... for feeding livestock. This means the price of meat will rise. Good thing. Of course, as land dedicated to biofuels increases, all other crops for feeding humans will become more expensive as well.

This is the trade-off. Do we continue in our extravagant ways, sacrificing all to maintain personal automobiles, wasteful lifestyles, unbridled consumerism?

Or do we recognize the signs telling us the bridge is out, slow down, turn back before it's too late.

The front tires are on the approach ramp, pedal to the metal.
