Land needed to grow food crops, and forests, should not be used to produce biofuels. The U.S. alone has a reported 60 million acres of insect-killed trees that could be converted into biofuels. Wind, solar, thermoelectric and agal-biodiesel fuels produced by growing algae on waste lands can also help meet our energy needs.

Signed and noted, Biofuel is not renewable when palm oil is involved. Palm oil destroys rain forrests and its wildlife habitat eg. Orang Utan and many others. Oil, coal and irresponsible biofuel production will not help us or our struggling planet. Solar and wind power is the only way to go.

I can't imagine anyone destroying so much of a rain forest. There has also been petitions out against palm oil, but are they doing any good? There are many, many sickos out there whose aim is to destroy nature, and they're getting by with it. It's as though they can't STAND nature.

Signed! Rainforest or tundra destruction is not warranted in the name of energy! We also have had horrible experinece with the corn farmer lobby and ethanol madates that have further degraded our farmland in the US and caused the death of many vehicles and small engines. It's a proven fact that a gallong of gasoline gives better mileage than a gallon with 10% or more ethanol. It aslo costs more in enrgy terms to produce ethanol. A return to sustainable farming vs agribusiness is needed. Rainforest destruction is never to be tolerated.
