Sentence of the day

Posted by Evan Herrnstadt on November 12, 2007

“The amount of water needed to grow the corn, process the fuel and dispose of the waste at a small ethanol plant is about equal to the water needs of a town of about 10,000, according to an Environmental Defense Fund report.”

Wall Street Journal (subscription req’d, sorry)
