    Because you don't have to destroy rainforests to grow them (unless I've missed something). It's not like petrol which is inherently environmentally unfriendly. Cutting down large areas of forest and growing these plants are mutually exclusive events.

    come on - where else is it going to go? The space required to produce an economically viable sugar cane or palm oil crop means that it's not going to be potato farmers in east anglia that are suddenly going to try their hand at making a bit of biodiesel.

    It's going to go to happen in third world countries, and they're going to rip down rainforests or substitute existing farmland for the latest cash crop
