Guardian Publishes World Bank Report on Biofuels

The Guardian has finally made available the previously mentioned report by the World Bank which points the finger at biofuels for somewhere in the neighborhood of 75% of the responsibility for the current rise in global food prices.  Just downloaded it and won't have time to read it for a while but here is the direct link (pdf) if you are interested.

PS - Who handles PR for the World Bank?  They should have released this thing themselves the  minute word got out that such a report existed.
