Its a really bad day for biofuels, according to the Reality Based Community blog (http://www.samefacts.com/archives/energy_and_environment_/2008/02/a_really_bad_day_for_biofuels.php).it looks like they've put two and two together. I'm not sure if they've come up with either four or twenty two...

My thoughts are its 22.

How to check for a biased report on biofuel.
Work out whats wrong with the first bit, then the second

Lesson 1 (not all things with the same features are the same)
Firstly, my dog has four legs, my next door neighbour has a cat with four legs, therefore my dog is a cat.

If 100% biofuel use would create greenhouse gas (through landclearing, baboon destruction, fertiliser use required for 100% use) therefore using any biofuel creates greenhouse gas emissions, (and kills baboons)

(the question is how much biofuels can we use and still create a benefit for the environment, when compared to fossil fuel)

Lesson 2 (what are ALL the options)
You have a choice of me hitting you with a small stick, or hitting you with a bat. As a bat will hurt more than a stick, the best option is to use a stick.

As 100% biofuel use will reate more greenhouse gas, then we are better off using fossil fuel.
(lets ignore acceptably made biofuels?)
