An added downside to bio-fuels that was not mentioned on the show is the potential impact on crop selection by farmers. As fuel prices increase, and it becomes more profitable for farmers large and small to consider growing crops for fuel rather than animal or human consumtption the potential exists for a decrease in food acreage and/or upward pressure on food prices. Bio-deisel is a good thing in general, especially if it is based on crop waste or used oils, but I don't think we want a system that would this directly impact something as essential as food.
