Ask Obama and Congress for No more Corn for Fuel


The 2008 food price crisis was caused in part by U.S. corn for fuel which caused speculation in grains, which caused runaway prices globally which caused hunger and riots.

Enough is enough of this inhumanity.

Letter to
U.S. House of Representatives
We have tried biofuels. The result has been rising hunger both here in the U.S. and in developing nations around the world. Now it's time to change the biofuels standards signed into law by President Bush in December 2007 and institute a moratorium on biofuel production and eliminate subsidies for that production.

Please pass and sign new legislation that calls a halt to government subsidies of a program that not only costs the American taxpayers, but also creates more hunger due to rising food prices.

Thank you.
