The lucrative agrofuels sector continues to be promoted by many as a clean green solution to climate change. Yet increasing demand for agrofuels gives large companies yet another reason to ‘grab’ land from traditional owners and users, and continue to destroy forests. The intensive production of agrofuels can even lead to more greenhouse gases being emitted than would have happened if fossil fuels had been used. Industrial agrofuels are part of the problem, not the solution.
