A crime against humanity
Food or Fuel?
It's a debate that the global biofuel industry wishes would just go away.
On October 25 2007 Jean Ziegler, the UN's Special Rapporteur on the
Right to Food called the production of biofuels a crime against humanity
and called for an international five-year ban on producing biofuels to
combat soaring food prices.
On November 16 2007 Ken McGowan, Leader of the Green Party of Nova
Scotia, in a speech delivered at the NSAC conference Atlantic
Bio-Renaissance, called on Prime Minister Harper to freeze all subsidies
to the Canadian Biofuel industry and to ban the production of Biofuels
in Canada for 5 years.
