Having said that - the idea of Africans growing biofuels to export to 1st word countries is a terrible idea. They should be growing food for themselves. A recent proposal to grow food to feed the world on the African Savannahs has been criticized as being unworkable - soil fertility, etc., just not sufficient and also a bad idea for the climate.
They urgently need to improve the productivity of the existing arable land in Africa simply to feed themselves never mind the northern hemisphere which is generally speaking able to feed itself.
But the type of technology that short-circuits a century or more of 'development' is a serious business and not to be sneered at I think.
