Oooops! Seemed like a good idea at the time . . .

Demand for biofuels is destroying the rain forest. (You remember the rain forest. It's where all the oxygen we breath comes from, according to smart people who conceive of themselves as environmentally sophisticated.)

Once again, politician types mandate a condition without looking at the means to achieve it. Those bozos have a childlike belief that scientists and big business can do anything, lacking only the firm hand of government to guide them along to desireable objectives.

The rain forests are famous for their diversity of species and ecotypes. They are absolutely unique, unprecedented, and essential. Although, I’m not quite sure whether anyone could tell a difference between O2 that is produced by a palm tree, a baobab, or a maple. We have managed to get rid of all the primary growths and didn’t see any signs of cyanosis.

One thing is unclear; why soya all of a sudden became a strictly tropical plant?

Through the dense thickets of woods, one can discern a call for funding to prevent rather unpreventable or to support this wonderful business of a distinguished knowledge.
