EPA Filing by ActionAid USA, CEI Targets Ethanol Fuel Programs

In anticipation of World Food Day, October 16, 2011, the Competitive Enterprise Institute and ActionAid USA today filed a formal complaint with the Environmental Protection Agency asking the agency to honestly assess the significant impact of its ethanol fuel programs on global food supplies.  The organizations’ filing, under the federal Data Quality Act, finds that EPA disseminated inaccurate information that downplays the extent to which hunger in developing countries has increased due to the diversion of grain stocks into ethanol fuel production.
