The Crop That Ate America
Corn will make up 68 percent of this year’s projected harvest of major U.S. grains and oilseeds this year, according to data the U.S. Department of Agriculture released Wednesday. That’s up from 47 percent in 1968. New markets and technology have made corn more profitable compared to other crops, which is why longtime farmers once devoted to competitive grains have switched to the nation’s number-one source for biofuels and cattle feed.

Week In Review: Trump's Advisors Divided Over Commitment to Paris Climate Accord
U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry advocated for the country to stay within the Paris climate accord, but for the deal to be renegotiated, at the Bloomberg New Energy Finance Summit in New York last Tuesday.

Across the Channel, the future of France’s future energy mix rests on the outcome of the presidential election on May 7. Centrist candidate Emmanuel Macron endorses the current plan to reduce nuclear output from 72 percent of France’s total electricity generation last year to 50 percent by around 2025. Macron says he wants to double France’s installed capacity of wind and solar power, pledging to launch tenders for 26GW of renewables by 2022. In contrast, National Front candidate Marine Le Pen supports nuclear power and wants to halt wind-turbine installations.
