Charity attacks rush for biofuels

A furious attack on the drive to grow more biofuels has been launched by a charity supporting poor farmers in developing countries.


The charity – called Grain – says their research shows the rush for biofuels is causing much more environmental and social damage than previously realised.


Biofuels from crops are being heavily promoted by the US and Europe as a welcome solution to climate change.


In theory their emissions are much lower than from fossil fuels.


But the report from the charity Grain amplifies recent warnings from the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) that some biofuels produce hardly any carbon savings at all.
