Summary This is the eBook version of the printed book. If the print book includes a CD-ROM, this content is not included within the eBook version. Why biofuels won't work--except for gigantic agribusinesses and their lobbyists. If the entire U.S. corn crop were converted to ethanol, the aggregate reduction in total fossil fuel (gasoline) energy consumption would be just 2.4%. Considering that we still want our corn flakes, pork chops (corn feeds hogs), and cooking oil, any realistic level of crop consumption for fuels would do virtually nothing to end U.S. dependence on foreign oil.
