The strong increases in revenue per capita in China, India and other emerging economies have led to an increase in the demand for food. These changes reduce the supply of cereals available for human consumption. In addition, the increase in the production of biofuels subsidized, further stimulated by the increase in the price of crude oil, it causes an increase in the demand for corn and other cereals and edible oils. According to the latest World Economic Outlook from the IMF (International Monetary Fund), although biofuels still represent 1% of the global supply of liquid fuels, between 2006 and 2007 were responsible for almost half of the increase in the consumption of the main crops of food, especially by the ethanol extracted from the corn produced in the United States. Adds us the bulletin, that the current rise in prices is due to a perfect storm, as called Costa, derived by various factors that have led to this rise: low productions by climate issues and natural causes, basically in Australia; by the incorporation of the market of Chinese and Indian consumption patterns that require a more massive use of cereals; the use of cereals for biofuels; the increase of raw materials such as fertilizer by the increase in the price of oil; a reduction accumulated of land devoted to crops in the past few decades and, Additionally, a speculation effect: hedge funds investing in raw materials, some countries of the East, and speculating about future increases distribution, lists Costa.

Ethanol as a Replacement for Fossil F

by

Ethanol is a renewable fuel, since it comes from corn and other vegetable sources which can be harvested and replanted. This is in stark contrast to fossil fuels, which take millions of years to create, and which we use at a rate which is far beyond our ability to keep up with.

According to those inside the ethanol industry, the use of ethanol during the past year helped to reduce the price of oil by 89 cents per gallon, saving Americans on the average about $800 last year. The ethanol industry employs almost 70,400 Americans and helps to sustain about 400,000 other jobs.

The use of ethanol as a fuel also helps to reduce the carbon footprint left behind when fossil fuels are burned. Many research studies and comparisons show that the difference is as much as a 40%-60% reduction.

Politically, the use of ethanol helps the US reduce its dependence on oil imports from countries in the Middle East, and other places, making the US more self-reliant and independent.
