The article presents the author's comment on issues related to the production of raw materials for biofuels. He appreciated Jean Ziegler, special rapporteur of the United Nation's Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), who condemned the use of good agricultural soil for production of raw materials for biofuels. He argues on the potential conflicts between bioenergy production and the protection of the environment, sustainable development, and food security of the rural poor.
