Titel: Agrofuel no cure for oil addicition and climate change
Sub titel: About equal distribution of land and energy and sustainable consumption

These days you can hardly ever pick up a newspaper without seeing an article about high oil prices. And television news constantly warns about our dependency on energy from unstable or 'unfriendly' regimes, which raises the oil price and makes people feel insecure about the reliability of supply. It raises the question “Will the supply be able to meet the growing world wide demand for oil?” Two years ago hardly anybody had heard of the issue. Now there is no family gathering without a discussion about 'peak oil'. And then there is climate change, a problem that suddenly became popular after being ignored by politicians and companies for more than 15 years. Agro-energy is being presented by the powerful as a solution to both the oil and the energy crises. However, over the past year more and more people are realising that this 'solution' is as bad as the problem it is trying to solve. Still, it is hard to stop agro-energy development, partly because other solutions require more serious changes of society, particularly in terms of consumption. In this brochure we hope to show not only that such change is absolutely necessary, but that living a sustainable life in a sustainable society can be fun and very rewarding.
