Biofuels not so green

I didn't need a couple of studies to tell me that biofuels are a bit of a political con trick, but now the evidence is mounting.

What many politicians simply don't understand is that biofuels are no different from fossil fuels except in the timing of their formation. With world hunger remaining a significant problem, it surprises me that so much land is being dedicated to growing energy when that land could be sustaining hungry mouths.

Tapping fossil (bio)fuels makes a lot more sense. Yes, Mr. Politician, crude oil is a biofuel!
