The danger of Bio-fuels! Part one.

The environmental movement has been pushing the use of Bio-fuels for years and they have succeeded in convincing enough politicians in Washington that it is in America's benefit to create incentives for it's production. Well, they got what they asked for with massive subsidies to produce ethanol going to large agricultural corporations all over the country. One of the unforeseen consequences (remember the Law of Unintended Consequences) of ethanol production is the massive amount of water that is used up during production. See article in The Economist
