Lula da Silva: Biofuels are good

After the chorus of voices we've heard recenlty claiming that biofuels aren't as good as we thought, someone had to defend the ethanols and the biodiesels of the world. Meet Brazilian president Luis Inazio Lula da Silva, who spoke our against what a UN worker, Jean Ziegler, when Ziegler claimed that biofuels were a crime against humanity.
"Don't anybody come to me to tell me that food prices are high because of biodiesel. Food prices are high because the world was not ready for a billion Chinese and a billion Indians eating more food," he added. Lula was also against certain agriculture subsidies introduced into U.S. and EU markets, which he blamed for the rise of prices as well.
