It's bad enough that most biofuels will almost always compete for available farmland.

As long as it's the corn industry pushing for higher ethanol levels, something's wrong.
There's far more efficient ways and plants to make biofuels, that don't directly compete with food supply.
That's why I'm favorable to cellulosic ethanol since it can be made out of almost any agricultural residue, and the usage of meat-processing leftovers to produce biodiesel and biomethane too. Well, there are many other ways to overcome the competition with food supplies.
