  1. Another reason why food prices have gone up is because in ‘developing nations’ more money can be made growing crops for biofuels than growing food. Food has become scarcer as agribusiness has moved over to the more lucrative biofuel crops – this demand has been created by western governments keen to cut emissions. Ironically, this drive to create land for biofuel growth has led to an increase in rainforest destruction. The rainforest is burnt to clear the land releasing far more carbon into the atmosphere than the entire global transport system. It really is, as you say, topsy-turvy.

  2. I believe that the G8 crowd are realising the error of their ways on this issue – but reversing all of that is going to take time.
    Thanks for your comment David.
