The Way It Is | Anna Brozek of Slowtrain



Experts want to reduce investment in biofuels like ethanol which are made from corn, arguing that they’re hurting food prices too much. Biofuel proponents contend that the tradeoff is worth the savings in gas prices. City Weekly asked Anna Brozek of Slowtrain if she thought scaling back on biofuel was a good idea.

We should cut back on production of biofuels to help with food. There are certainly alternative ways to save money on gas, like riding a bike, walking or public transportation. Opportunities to reduce our gasoline usage are almost endless, and to try and lower gas prices at the expense of the cost of food doesn’t seem very smart, especially since we haven’t fully exercised other options to reduce our need for gasoline.
