I personaly think it would be a great idea for sign for the exploration of more indepth bio-fuel production. In this particular artical sugar can ethanol fuel has been produced and in use in this Brazilian city since the 70's. Now that Bush wants the fuel to become more available and exported world wide people are raising flags about environmental issues to the Amazon rain forest. My question is, if this fuel has been produced since the 70's why is the Amazon just now becoming an issue? It would seem to me that if any country was to expand and begin production of any type of ethanol or bio-fuel on a large scale production that there would automaticaly be certain steps taken to ensure the safty to the public, and the environment around them.
