Join the big biofuel debate

biofuels

ActionAid UK will be hosting an evening dedicated to the discussion of biofuels, and we would like you to join us.

When? 16 February, 6.30pm.
Where? London Transport Museum, Covent Garden, London, WC2E 7BB.
Who? The debate will bring together scientists, academics, journalists, politicians, influential thinkers and bloggers to battle over biofuels
Wine? The debate will be followed by a wine reception.

Biofuels have huge implications for two of humanity’s most pressing issues: climate change and hunger. As their use increases, so does the controversy surrounding them.

Our panelists at The Big Biofuel Debate will be asking questions at the heart of the controversy:

  • Are biofuels the panacea to our climate ills or actually more polluting than the fossil fuels they were designed to replace?  
  • Have they been responsible for the hike in food prices or have they been falsely blamed?

The event will provoke and engage people from all sides of the argument as they seriously consider the solutions biofuels offer as well as the problems they pose.

The Big Biofuel Debate takes place at the London Transport Museum on 16 February 2010 at 6.30pm. Places are free of charge, but strictly limited: email campaign@actionaid.org to reserve your seat.
