Hooray for the Europeans

The Oregroanian July 8, 2008: Page C-1, An article titled –Europeans backpedal on switch to biofuels–States. “—European officials propose scaling back dramatically their goal of increasing Europe’s use of biofuels, a major about-face on a central environmental and energy issue.” “—the allure has dimmed amid growing evidence that targets proposed by the European Union may be contribution to deforestation, which speeds climate change and helping force up food prices.” Duh! It always amazes me how little the great environmental scientist of this world think ahead. Where did they think that these biofuels would come from, a distant planet? Existing croplands are producing food for a hungry world, there is no surplus of cropland. It ether has to come from existing croplands or new croplands have to be made. In the first case, we starve people. In the second case, we cut down forests and fill in wetlands.

Hello environmentalists, there is no free lunch.
