- DocumentThe Ecologist, 2007In recent years, the biotech industry has put considerable effort into attempting to reposition genetically modified (GM) crops as a non-food, industrial “green” energy commodity. While genetically modified biofuel crops are already a reality in the US, the planting of GM crops in Europe is still very limited due to public resistance.Document
The Amazon’s vicious cycles: drought and fire in the greenhouse - ecological and climatic tipping points of the world’s largest tropical rainforest, and practical preventive measuresWWF-World Wide Fund For Nature, 2007The Amazon forest greatly influences the global climate and may be coming under increasing threat due to climate change. This report explores the relationship between the Amazon, climate, and the changes in this relationship that are underway as a result of forest destruction and the release of heat-trapping gases into the atmosphere.DocumentWahenga, Regional Hunger and Vulnerability Programme, 2007As biofuel production continues to expand rapidly all over the world, there is increasing concern about how this will affect food prices, particularly of foodcrops used to produce biofuels.Document
