I hear congress talking about biofuels constantly. Who’s benefiting?
BioFuels or Agrofuels are the creation of large agribusiness corporations. They’re not green or sustainable.
South America, southeast Asia and Indonesia are clearing land and deforestation is rampant. They use massive amounts of herbicides and pesticides on their crops polluting the water system.
Substituting just 10% cent of fossil fuels to biofuels for all our vehicles would require about 40 per cent of the entire cropland in Europe and North America according to www.davidsuzuki.org.
That’s not even considering the energy requirements to produce some biofuels and the greenhouse gas emissions emitted from these plants. So enough with biofuels already.

Cargill, Archer Daniels Midland and Bunge are benefiting and are partially responsible for this global catastrophe.
Who raises ppl like this anyhow?
