BRUSSELS: European Union targets to boost biofuel use are likely to have led to the deforestation of an area roughly the size of the Netherlands over the last decade to expand soy, palm and other oil crops, a report said on Monday.
It found that EU demand for biodiesel required the cultivation of 1.1 million hectares (2.7 million acres) of palm in Southeast Asia and 2.9 million hectares (7.2 million acres) of soybeans in South America.
That suggests efforts to replace polluting fuels such as diesel with biofuels are paradoxically increasing planet-warming carbon dioxide emissions, said Laura Buffet, T&E's energy director.
This is where their Green plans are more like the Pale Horse mentioned in Revelation -
The fourth horseman of the Apocalypse rode a pale horse. "And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was DEATH , and HELL (fire) followed with him. And power was given unto them (the four horsemen) over the fourth part (1/4) of the earth, to kill with sword (weapons), and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth." This horseman rode on a pale /sick horse (sickly GREEN in the Greek original text). The fourth horseman represents pollution and nature dying (sickly green ) with famines; pestilences and plagues brought about by climatic changes caused by deforestation and pollution. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
Deforestation is a also a Sign of the End Times.
Just a thought - if starvation is a major concern for NGOs; and leaders talk about ending starvation - Why are they using food crops for fuel? Can't bio-fuel be made with waste?
