Biofuel isn’t as green as you might think. Plus, if farmers grow huge amounts of biofuel stock rather than food crops, then the price of food will rise. Also, large amounts of gasoline and petroleum-based fertilizers are used to grow it.
It’s also heavily subsidized, 51 cents per gallon, and that’s going to biofuel plants in the midwest. It’s not rocket science to see that many of the beneficiaries of this largesse are Republicans. Since biofuel is about the only renewable energy source that the Bushies have enthusiastically endorsed, well yes, color me suspicious.
