Friends of the Earth: Stop the biofuels targets
Biofuels are a false solution to climate change and are doing much more harm than good. The EU is proposing a binding target to increase biofuels use to 10% of road fuels by 2020. This massive increase in Europe’s demand for biofuels will have a devastating impact on the world’s poorest countries by:
* Destroying communities.
* Damaging wildlife.
* Pushing up food prices.
In recent months, report after report from esteemed organisations like the UN and the Royal Society have warned of the dangers of biofuels expansion.
