WASHINGTON - As the nation's top agricultural leaders met at the USDA Agricultural Outlook Forum, ActionAid USA called attention to the Renewable Fuel Standard's impacts on agriculture and food security.
ActionAid USA's Kristin Sundell says, "Between the continuing drought and U.S. ethanol policy, food security for millions of people is in jeopardy.
"The jump in food prices from last year proves energy policies like the Renewable Fuel Standard, which divert land from food to fuel crops, are irresponsible and should be reformed."
USDA economists claim food prices will go up 3.5 percent because of last year's drought.
