Bio-fuel or Food Security?

These past days, my favorite topic was on rice shortage and rice importation related to the issue on food security. I could not remember when it was but I read that House Speaker Nograles was quoted by one paper saying that bio-fuel could not be sacrificed over food security. I only read the headline and I suspect that he must have been quoted out of context. I give him the benefits of the doubt for I believe noone with good sense of judgment could say it. Food security is primordial need of the humanity – we are humanity in this part of the globe that needs food or food security over bio-fuel. So my answer to that headline? Food security over bio-fuel.
