Venus de mileage – cartoon on bio-fuels

venus_de_millage_by_shtiggy

Cartoon that I coloured in recently.  This was drawn for Corporate Watch UK a few years ago, and never used.  I have tried to show how the greedy car is switching it’s fuel supply from petroleum oil to bio-fuel.  There are many reasons to reduce our use of fossil fuels, but switching to bio-fuels can often lead to huge new problems.  When some European countries became interested in fuels made from plants, there was a sudden spate of deforestation in the far east, especially Indonesia, to provide land for new plantations to grow the plants to make the bio-fuel.  So natural habitats were damaged.  Also, diverting land from growing food to growing fuels is wrong.  For more information on the threat posed by bio-fuels, please visit BiofuelsWatch.
