The biofuels boom

Now if this isn't the precursor to food riots I don't know what is.

Barbed wire? Hell, it can't even contain cattle in some cases and cattle are stupid.

Wait. People can be pretty stupid animals too.
A growing global food crisis has not curbed the appetite of Canada's newest biofuel plant, which is busy stockpiling a mountain of wheat near this town west of Regina. Huge trucks loaded with grain roll into the $130-million plant, weigh in, then swing round and add to the growing pile of wheat behind a chain-link fence topped with barbed wire.
