I don't think they were ever viewed as green by environmentalists unless they were genuinely utilising a waste product such as waste vegetable oil. 

One only has to look at Biodiesel. 1200-1500 litres of diesel per acre of Canola. Thats going to work well isn't it.......

when an average person understand they've being lied to about climate change (standard of living has to change for this) - people will get really pissed off. Like in Paris. Can't wait to see CNN and CBS flipping...

Such a hypocrisy - if one believe into CO2 driving warming, how is same person can protest against nuclear and support biofuel which leads to deforestation as in England before start of coal mining?

Burning waste products also emits stuff, alas. That's why some people remind us regularly there is no such thing as a completely emissionless energy.

Exactly but few are ready to do it. @Rodent wrote a brilliant blog about it a while ago.

I tend to agree, but this is not looking at all variables. For example - what about cost of climate refugees? I really dislike when people zero in on one thing and disregard the nig picture.

Once upon a time............. there were two very close words e.g prostrate and prostate; castration vs circumcision........... people sometimes mistakenly pronounce one for another.......... so might be green and clean ............or no??
