Reasons Why Biofuels Are A Bad Idea:


  1. Not energy efficient at all - it takes more energy per unit to create them than they provide (this has been known for a while)

  2. They disrupt basic food supplies for many people living at a subsistence level, and may even encourage destruction of forests in some places as the land is converted to use for more profitable biofuel crops

  3. Sister Wakasa is reading the book Day of the Triffids (we both saw the movie years ago, and the backstory was significantly altered), and the triffids are actually "grown" for their oil. There's a cold war attack that goes wrong, and the triffids take advantage of the opening it creates.

Forget it, bub - no triffid feeding here.
