You know how Fidel Castro has been going on about biofuels lately?

And naturally enough, the old reactionary blames the US.

Well, here is a timely rebuttal by William Saletan, published in the online magazine Slate.

Worth reading.

So now Castro believes there is a God?

He's straving the Cubans, but he's worried about the world going hungry??

Does anyone see the paradox?
