Bush, Brazil and Ethanol

In a few weeks, President Bush will visit Brazil, where Lula DaSilva will push him to increase US exports of Brazilian sugar cane ethanol. Apart from the pressure Bush is already hearing from corn producing states to reject the request, it's unclear how feasible this is.

I'll look at this more in a few days, but in the meantime, check out CEI's recent study on why the US can't produce ethanol like Brazil does, and a look at the ethanol partnership envisioned by Brazil.
