UK 'should end biofuel subsidies'

Date : 26th August 2008, Source : BBC Link to News Story



The government should stop funding biofuels and use the money to halt the destruction of rainforests and peatland instead, a think tank has said. Policy Exchange said the switch would have a bigger impact on climate change because trees and peatland remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. The government currently spends 550m annually on biofuel subsidies. The Conservatives said biofuels "may be damaging the environment and endangering food security".
