President Bush promised to expand American biofuel production, but the result has been worse than nothing. Corn is a poor source for energy, but growing it and other staples as fuel has caused food prices worldwide to explode – even as the scarcity of flex-fuel vehicles means no significant increase in U.S. biofuel use.

Now the U.N. is worried about rising food costs, while environmentalists see entire regions torn up to grow fuel crops. The great ethanol boom of 2007 goes bust, this week on Global Pulse.

  1. Everything is interconnected, in economics as it is in the natural ecosystem. I agree we need to ween ourselves off of bio-based energy sources. Hopefully a change of thinking and developing technologies in alternatives such as solar, fusion, wind and wave; will be implemented before it is to late.
