Item #d93may97

"France Placates Farmers with Plant Fuel Plan," T. Patel, New Scientist, p. 18, Feb. 27. Despite French and German (next article) studies concluding that growing crops to produce fuels for vehicles is neither economically nor environmentally justifiable, the French government is pursuing an expensive biofuels project under pressure from the farm lobby.

Item #d93may98

"Rough Road Ahead for Biodiesel Fuel," C. Meyer, ibid., p. 19, Feb. 6. A study released by Germany's Federal Environmental Office (UBA) concludes that there are cheaper and more effective ways of reducing greenhouse gas emissions than by subsidizing the cultivation of rapeseed, a measure favored by Europe's farmers.
