The optimism that many people once used to speak about biofuels is now getting hit hard by cynicism when it comes to the rising cost of food and how that is related to food becoming fuel. Somewhere in the middle, we may find the truth. We may also find out what policies or forces are helping or hurting world hunger, and the cost of food. In this podcast I make use of a recent On Point episode, which includes interviews with numerous people that work in the field of food, biofuels, and the economy. Full credit to On Point as these interviews are all from their excellent program, with my commentary and own facts in between.
