Don't burn food: biofuels standards now!

Increased demand for biofuels is driving up food prices and accelerating climate change, as rainforests are destroyed to grow fuel. But with strong global sustainability standards, we can ensure that biofuels help, rather than hurt.

This weekend, the twenty biggest economies, responsible for more than 75% of the world's carbon emissions, will meet in Chiba, Japan to begin the climate change discussions leading up to the G8 summit this summer. Before the summit, let's send our leaders messages urging the adoption of global standards for biofuels.

Sending your message is easy. Enter your information below, and your leader will automatically be targeted in the form to the right. You can then either type your own message, or send our pre-written version. Either way, join a global cry for biofuel change--urge your leader for biofuels standards now!
