Aaargh, aaargh, make it stop, please!
Mr Barroso called for international agreement on the types of biofuels that should be allowed but insisted that the EU targets would increase their sustainability. “The only alternative we have for biofuels today is oil. And there is no question, the impact on the environment of oil is much greater than for biofuels.”
No, you pint sized Portugee moron!
We know that biofuels lead to greater emissions than the use of fossil fuels.
You\’re insisting that we all go off to make the problem worse.
Look, please, can you not simply admit that you\’ve all made a mistake, that biofuels are only the answer to the question "how do we cook the planet faster while making everyone poorer?"
I\’ll even draft the speech for you. You know, Keynes and all that. "New scientific evidence has come to light showing that the earlier decision was based on incomplete information. As the late great Lord Keynes once said, "When the facts change I change my mind. Pray, what do you do Sir?".
Or is that too difficult?
Can we leave yet?
