''More and more, people are realizing that there are serious environmental and serious food security issues involved in biofuels,'' Greenpeace biofuels expert Jan van Aken said. ''There is more to the environment than climate change,'' he said. ''Climate change is the most pressing issue, but you cannot fight climate change by large deforestation in Indonesia.''
Who DID NOT see this coming? Raise your hands. Okay. You two! (points) You are now both "Greenpeace biofuels experts."
Anybody, ANYBODY, who has paid the slightest bit of attention for, say THE LAST THREE YEARS, would have known that shoving biofuels down the throats of the world was just shifting the problem from Gorebal Worming to famine and deforestation. For God's sake people read the damned Wall Street Journal for once! Self interest is the best predictor of future markets. Perhaps if there were a few more ECONOMISTS in your little play pen you might have a clue. Oh, that's right, you don't like what those kinds of people have to say.
What's next on your "we've got to do something" list, Mr. Expert? Soylent Green?
