The Ed Gallagher, chair of the UK's Renewable Fuels Agency says that sustainable biofuels are possible but:

We cannot afford to abandon biofuels as part of a low carbon transport future. Equally, we cannot continue producing biofuels which are ultimately more environmentally damaging than the fossil fuels they seek to replace.

This is a whale of a report, and too big for one person to get hold of in an hour or two's reading. Have a look at the Report of the Gallagher review (http://www.dft.gov.uk/rfa/_db/_documents/Report_of_the_Gallagher_review.pdf)yourself and make your mind up. I'll be examining three areas over the next couple of days:
Commodity prices, food security and economic impacts; Advanced technology; and the direction of policy. Perhaps we could talk about it a little later.
