Not sure how much of it is true and how much of it is exaggerated. I find that several blanket or sweeping statements have little or no scientific basis. In my understanding, every biofuel will have a threshold point and the marginal cost (from finance and environmental view point) of pushing beyond that point will be exponential. However, harnessing biofuels by not exceeding critical limits will result in significant economic and environmental benefits and rural community stability. Unfortunately, most of the articles such as this polarize the issue.

This is a powerful article that shows the frightening socio-ecological
ramifications of biofuels that are based on the model of mass fuel
consumption fed by industrial agriculture.
