Not to be derailed by the truth, wacky environmentalists insist that bio-fuels are the answer to the imaginary menace of global warming...
European union green fuel targets will accelerate the destruction of rainforests in South-East Asia and threaten the habitat of endangered species, such as the orang-utan.
In March EU leaders agreed to set a binding climate change target to make biofuel - energy sources made from plant material - account for 10 per cent of all Europe's transport fuels by 2020.
But the European Commission has admitted that the objective, which aims to cut carbon dioxide emissions, may have the unintended consequence of speeding up the destruction of tropical rainforests and peatlands in South-East Asia - actually increasing, not reducing, global warming.
To Gaia-worshipping cultists like Al Gore and his witless European counterparts, it matters not that they will be directly responsible for destroying the world's rain forests by thoughtlessly demanding that the world convert to a bio-fuel economy. The only thing that matters is that they feel better about themselves and their stupid, hybrid cars that nobody wants, and can look condescendingly down their noses at the rest of us as evil, capitalist polluters.
This is what South-East Asian rainforests will look like after stupid environmentalists' demand for "bio-fuels" is met.
