Absolutely. Biofuels are more earth friendly and other fuels are being used up. In the long run biofuels are the only way to go. The government should make laws encouraging their use.
Lisa Marchant, Second year student, anthropology
Yeah I think biofuels are good. We need to do anything we can to better the Earth.
Denis Orr, Winnipeg Regional Health Authority worker
The technology has a ways to go. It will be a good alternative, but at this point I don’t think it’s cost effective. Ultimately I think it will be a good replacement.
Stephen Ross, Fourth year student, history
I think biofuels would be better. There are plenty of plants, not as much oil.
Mina Mayel, Second year student, science
I think biofuels are a good alternative, because they are made from organic matter and biomass; they’re renewable, plus I think they are better for the environment.
Sarah Semmler, Fourth year student, biology
No, I think the best alternative is green electric energy. I would rather go to solar than biofuels. We should reserve the crops for food rather than fuel.
