EU biofuels significantly harming food production in developing countries

EU companies have taken millions of acres of land out of food production in Africa, central America and Asia to grow biofuels for transport, according to development campaigners. The consequences of European biofuel targets, said the report by ActionAid, could be up to 100 million more hungry people, increased food prices and landlessness.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is, of course, a replay of what we saw here in the US when farmlands diverted for ethanol production resulted in food shortages and increased prices, which were then exacerbated by the loss of farmlands to flooding due to unmaintained flood controls.
