Security? Try Crisis!

According to a confidential World Bank study, as reported by The Guardian, biofuels are the primary cause of the global food crisis, forcing up world food prices by 75%. This is a shocking difference from the usual 3% impact the US government has been reporting. In America, the production of these biofuels was legislated by Congress, through subsidies and mandates requiring their production.
