Calling biofuel development a crime is probably overstating the case. To qualify as criminal behavior, however, the promoters of biofuels would have to be acting with malice. I'll give the some credit. I don't think they are malicious, just very misguided.
The politically correct misguided souls should listen to someone who happens to be particularly knowledgeable about food production, Peter Brabeck-Letmathe, who heads Nestle - the largest food company in the world. According to him, giving "enormous subsidies for biofuel production is morally unacceptable and irresponsible . . . There will be nothing left to eat."
Food riots are already happening around the world and people are starving. Prices continue to rise. Still, governments including our own subsidize the production of fuel from food. It doesn't seem to make much sense. It makes even less sense when temperatures are falling and the whole biofuel movement is out there to combat the bogeyman of global warming.
