    read this and see if you still feel the same about biofuels
    That doesn't really have anything to do with bio-fuel per se though, not any more than eating beef is supporting ripping down rainforests to graze cows on.

    eh? How do you get to that conclusion?

    The whole argument for biofuels is that they're sustainable and supposedly environmentally friendly. How can you square that with the fact that the two largest biofuel sources (sugar cane from Brazil and Palm Oil from SE Asia) are being expanded by clearing native rainforests (releasing massive amounts of stored carbon in the process) or by reducing the amount of existing farm land available for food production?
