Gasahol is Genocide

American and European biofuel mandates and subsidies are starving the Guatemalan working class.

GUATEMALA CITY — In the tiny tortillerias of this city, people complain ceaselessly about the high price of corn. Just three years ago, one quetzal — about 15 cents — bought eight tortillas; today it buys only four. And eggs have tripled in price because chickens eat corn feed.

Brought to you by the same folks who would denounce the United Fruit Company.

Tip from the Knowledge Problem.

Update (14 January).  The mandates are hitting Americans in the pocketbook as well.  Tip from the Instapundit.
