Warning on biofuels and food

Two Latin American leaders have issued warnings about the effects of biofuel
production on food supplies.

Speaking at the UN in New York, Bolivian President Evo Morales said the development of biofuels harmed the world’s most impoverished people. And President Alan Garcia of Peru said using land for biofuels was putting food out of reach for the poor.

Meanwhile UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown is hosting a meeting to discuss European policy encouraging biofuels. Ahead of the meeting, Mr. Brown said that the UK should be “more selective in our support” for biofuels. Campaigners say providing a renewable alternative for conventional fuels can help stop global warming.

There was always something suspicious about biofuels from the very beginning especially after finding out that George W. Bush supports the idea!
