Midwest floods another reason to dump ethanol
Note that in the Register's editorial on the Midwest floods, usually empathetic boilerplate in the case of most disasters, we took the occasion to call yet again for an end to the ethanol program. It jhust makes sense to me; crops are going to be down, so using any of them for ethanol in the middle of a world food crisis that the U.S. is likely toi feel in even higher food prices, would be incredibly perverse. But I don't think many other newspapers caught the connection.
