Agrofuels, Food Sovereignty, and the Contemporary Food Crisis
Rosset, Peter
Bulletin of Science, Technology & Society, v29 n3 p189-193 2009
In this article, agrofuels are examined in the context of the world food price crisis and the "food sovereignty" proposal for addressing the crisis. Both short- and long-term causes of the crisis are examined, and while agrofuels are presently not a prime causal factor they are clearly contraindicated by the crisis. Food sovereignty, including a moratorium on agrofuels, is argued to offer the best option for managing the crisis. (Contains 1 figure, 1 table and 3 notes.)
