Biofuels ? the facts

On 15th April the Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation (RTFO) came into force and this requires all fuels sold at pumps in the UK to have at least 2.5%
biofuel included. As Graham Wynne, Chief Executive of the RSPB explained when he visited the BOC last September, the impact of this policy has never
been properly calculated or explained. The public and all those who care for the environment should understand the issues with this which have a wide
impact on world poverty, destruction of rainforests and birdlife in the UK.

For further information have a look at the RSPB Press Release on the subject
and at the articles
in the Independent.
We all need to help educate the public on this issue.
