please don't eat the biofeul

earlier I talked about the problem we are currently facing with the rising price of food which some say is party due to farmers growing things used for biofeul instead of food.

besides tower farming and not expecting a magic bullet to solve are problems another that could help solve this problem is to focus a bit more on crops that aren't eating by people to use for biofuel.

Things like switchgrass and algea for example.

I haven't looked at switchgrass much but I like algea for a number of reasons.

for example you wouldn't have to use farm land to grow it. you can get algea from lakes (and other bodies of water) or grow it indoors. this leaves land to farm food.
