There is more optimism today on the opportunities for non-food biofuel crops with a number of bloggers outlining the possibilities of non-food crops. Today we have Bobmorris' Politicis in the zeros' blog promising us non-food fuels in the next 15 years (http://polizeros.com/2008/04/18/biofuel-from-non-food-crops-within-15-years/). To me though that's quite a long gap, we'll need to do something in the mean time. Perhaps we could use the organic parts of waste to produce biofuels.

They've only just figured that out?

If they pulled their finger out and supported some of the promising technologies (like oil from algae, and cellulosic ethanol) they could be here a whole lot sooner.
