Editor's Note: Political, corporate and media support of corn ethanol as an
alternative fuel can't hide serious problems with this energy source, the
writer says. New America Media contributor Christopher D. Cook is the author
of "Diet for a Dead Planet: Big Business and the Coming Food Crisis" (New
Press). He has written for Harper's, The Economist, The Christian Science
Monitor and elsewhere.  For more info: www.dietforadeadplanet.com.
