Why don't we import sugar for alt fuel(like Brazil), instead of using corn, which drives up food costs?

Sooner or later most cars will be hybrids and if they could use alt fuel, sugar cane like in Brazil we'd curb are dependencies on oil and become greener, Why are we not doing this now?

I was briefly watching a special about this. It seemed very postive and Brazil is totally independant on it.The people will need to fight for it. Complaining isn't going toget your voice heard.

I'm from Brazil but have lived in the US for the past 15 years, and me and my dad have talked about that before... we were wondering if the climate, let's say in Texas, would permit farmers to plant sugar cane here in the US... it makes sense since corn is so yummy, save that for food. But maybe it's expensive to import it from other countries... or the demand there is too high for them to be exporting. Who knows...
