Editorials address false claims on corn, ethanol

Here are two editorials published in different papers defending ethanol and corn. They make some good points and help set the record straight.

The first, in the Des Moines Register, is by Robert Brown of the Bioeconomy Institute at Iowa State University. He addresses some false points involving land use that were made in another commentary in the paper. This land use issue is of growing importance and worth paying attention to, especially since there is a lot of ways to exploit bad science to the detriment of corn producers. Check it out here.

The second was published in the Windsor Beacon (Colorado). In his commentary, Dan Sanders Jr., general manager of Front Range Energy jumps on the Grocery Gang and high food prices, again making some good points. Check it out here.
