The real cost of Bio Fuel

Soaring food prices and starving children provide a stirring backdrop toward the debate on biofuels, but the big businesses of farming, forestry and automotive could have a heavier influence on policy then the world's hunger for food.

The green credentials of biofuels have come under attack, and with just reason, over fears they compete for farmland and push up food prices - as is happening around the world.

Riots over food in more than a dozen countries, from Indonesia to Haiti, have also proven the urgency and validity of the debate.

If you don't believe the push to increase biofuel is impacting the food supply at your local level just stop and take note of the increases in the cost of food over the past year.
