Consumption or energy?

Agriculture scientist Norman Ernest Borlaug, who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1970, played a significant role to usher in the Green Revolution by developing successive generations of disease-resistant, high-yield wheat varieties in the 1960s and the '70s. In an interview with Washington Times reporter Ashish Kumar Sen, Mr. Borlaug, 94, refutes President Bush's assertion that countries such as India and China are to blame for the shortage of food stocks and higher prices. The fault, he says, lies with the world's obsession with biofuels.
