So now after billions spent, including subsidies written into law that will last for many years, people are realizing that biofuels have this little nasty consequence… raising the price of food big time which might cause starvation of millions (and kill the German beer in the process!).
Dang, now scientists are saying that biofuels are actually worse for global warming than oil. Now that is kind of crazy eh?
However, a few years ago when the frenzy began people were all for it. Scientists and the press were not yelling, the media was not making documentaries about these problems. As far as I know Mr. Obama and Hillary are still talking about supporting this (at least they were during the Iowa primaries…)
This only shows how this global warming craze can be dangerous. This lefty instinct of “doing something, quick!” is really a problem. When you add the free ride given by the press and the sympathies of a large part of our scientific community, it’s a dangerous combination.
The UN steps up (always with great timing!) and declares: Biofuel a ‘crime against humanity’
