The moral challenge

Gordon Brown now thinks we should be "more selective" in employing a biofuels policy.  Quote of the day:

"If our UK review shows that we need to change our approach, we will also push for change in EU biofuels targets"

We need to review this?  Come on, Gordon, don't be so wishy washy, that's how we got into this fine mess in the first place, by paying too many people to study the problem!

[An extra thought on the article.  We keep reading that the number of people being pushed into greater poverty may be 100 million.  That number will surely rise in the coming months, mark my words.  This is a very serious problem, far more serious than the politicians imagine.]
