Even The NY Times Calls BS On It.

Roger Cohen, in an op-ed, calls bullshit on the ethanol-fueled food shortage:

"The supposed crimes of biofuels are manifold. They’re behind soaring global commodity prices, the destruction of the Amazon rain forest, increased rather than diminished greenhouse gases, food riots in Haiti, Indonesian deforestation and, no doubt, your mother-in-law’s toothache.

Most of this, to borrow a farm image, is hogwash and bilge."

I'm confused; are hogwash and bilge biofuels?
