Compulsory Biofuel

Even the BBC cannot avoid what is fast becoming the realization that biofuel production is far from green, leading to greater poverty among indigenous peoples and driving the price of basic foods beyond the reach of many millions.

So they have devoted a lot of column inches to this report that the UK Government is mandating at least 2.5% of petrol and diesel must include biofuel.  Yet another example of the politics of global warming gone awry.
