Rethink Draft Biofuels Policy

Good intentions lain to waste:-
The Governments draft biofuels policy, the Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation (RTFO), could see businesses producing biofuels by destroying rainforests and wetlands.
This dash for biofuels:
Is poorly thought out
Lacks appropriate safeguards
Could create more problems than it solves
Greenpeace, RSPB, WWF and Friends of the Earth are all demanding that the RTFO is strengthened so that it truely benefits the environment.Tell the Minister of State for Transport to choose the right biofuel.
