The Economist and Castro finally agree

Fidel Castro returns and delivers a speech that needed to be made about how the rush to biofuels means that land previusly dedicated to food will be converted to produce fuel. This benefits the first world and increases the problems in the third world.

The Economist, rarely a supporter of Castro agreed.

"But when he roused himself from his sickbed last week to write an article criticising George Bush's unhealthy enthusiasm for ethanol, he had a point."

It all comes back to the fact that the world still believes that we don't need to make a radical shift in the way that we live our life and believe that technology will do it for us.
