Podcast: Fear mongers are wrong about ethanol, and there's proof

In this podcast, Steve Ebke, a farmer from Daykin and a member of the Nebraska Corn Growers Association, looks back two years ago this month when "news and magazine articles, bloggers and full-time fear mongers proclaimed that corn ethanol was ruining civilization."

The arguments made by those fear mongers and half-truth tellers was bogus then -- and is now for those who continue down that short-sighted path. Ebke reminds us that there was more corn in storage this month than at any time since the late 1980s -- and that there is more corn being stored just on farms than what the entire ethanol industry will use this year!

In fact, Ebke noted, there is more corn in storage on farmers and grain elevators now than was harvested in 1989.

The words of paid fear mongers aren't worth much, he concludes.
