Russ Harding, senior environmental analyst, wrote an Op-Ed in Saturday's New York Times about the problems ethanol subsidies create, calling on the federal government to put an end to them.

Harding wrote that these subsidies will not make the United States less dependent on foreign energy sources, nor does ethanol production help the environment. He also pointed out that increased ethanol production has had an adverse impact on the food supply for the world's poorest people.

Harding has addressed this issue previously, as have other Center scholars. Michigan Capitol Confidential examined the issue here and here.
