Corn, Fuel and Food Shortage

Food for thought: "it takes 232 kg of corn to fill an average 50 litre car tank with ethanol - enough corn to feed a child for an entire year. It is estimated that almost 20% of total US corn production will go towards ethanol this year and the number is set to rise to 45% by 2015"
And we wonder why the prices are high and food riots around tthe world.
