First I read headline in HuffPo: Shell Deems Fuel Derived From Food “Morally Inappropriate”... and thought 'great... a politically correct reason for continuing our dependence on fossil fuels...'.
Then I read the article:
Royal Dutch Shell, the world's top marketer of biofuels, considers using food crops to make biofuels "morally inappropriate" as long as there are people in the world who are starving, an executive said on Thursday.Okay. Never mind. You're good.
Eric G Holthusen, Fuels Technology Manager Asia/Pacific, said the company's research unit, Shell Global Solutions, has developed alternative fuels from renewable resources that use wood chips and plant waste rather than food crops that are typically used to make the fuels.
