George Monbiot is right on the mark when he states “the adoption of biofuels would be a humanitarian and environmental disaster”. Agriculture has been a primary destroyer of the Earth's ecosystems. We simply can not grow enough biomass to meet current and continued energy demands, without destroying more natural habitat and diverting food from the poor.

“Those who have been promoting these fuels are well-intentioned, but wrong. They are wrong because the world is finite. If biofuels take off, they will cause a global humanitarian disaster.”
