Food for oil


A photo-illustration for Geez magazine about the issue of biofuels (thanks to Bryan, Emma and Mykel for the kid pics).

From last week's New Statesman: What biofuels do is undeniable: they take food out of the mouths of starving people and divert them to be burned as fuel in the car engines of the world's rich consumers. This is, in the words of the United Nations special rapporteur on the right to food, Jean Ziegler, nothing less than a "crime against humanity".

In the immortal words of Stephen Colbert:
Ethanol solves the energy crisis. Is there any problem alcohol can't solve?
