Most support using corn for biofuels.

Our latest ZimmPoll asked the question, ”Do you support biofuel production and the use of corn to do this?”

Our poll results: The majority of you at sixty percent say Yes, thirty-three percent said No, four percent were Indifferent and four percent chose Other. Growing crops to use as biomass for producing fuel seems to be the best alternative to depleting our finite stocks of oil and they have the added benefit of being more friendly to our environment.

Our new ZimmPoll is now live and asks the question, “What did you think of Dodge Super Bowl commercial?” The late conservative radio broadcaster Paul Harvey’s “So God Made a Farmer” speech was the voice of the Ram Trucks Super Bowl 2013 commercial. Paul Harvey was a large voice for HSUS and an animal rights advocate. This may cause agriculturalists to have mixed feelings about Ram’s commercial. How do you feel about the commercial? Can you look past what he represented and smile about the message that he conveyed? Let us know.

ZimmPoll is sponsored by New Holland Agriculture.

  1. Global corn stockpiles at record lows coupled and the world is experiencing the most extreme drought conditions in decades. Russia and other European countries have stopped exporting corn. In a world full of starving people and with food, feed & fuel prices steadily rising; does anyone truly believe that making fuel from corn is the highest & best use corn? Most right thinking people support making ethanol and biofuels from materials that are not necessary in the animal or human food chain. So unless or until it is determined that corn and corn byproducts do not belong in the animal or human food chains, corn does not belong in our gas tanks. Natural gas is a very clean, abundant, cheap andsafe reasonable alternative to corn ethanol. What good is it to have a 100 year supply of natural gas when there is very little or nothing to eat?

    Really?! Oh, Please. Back off, man. It’s not that bad. No one is excluding natural gas. In fact, sounds like you’ve been making gas this morning, Michael!
