Nobel laureate against biofuels?

See post Nobel Prize Plant Scientist Outspoken Against Biofuel Effiency including the text related to opinions of Nobel laureate Hartmut Michel:

Dr. Michel adds, however, that even if non-food plant substances like algae and manure are used instead of grains and sugar to produce biofuel, the overall inefficiencies of converting energy from sunlight into a chemical fuel product still do not warrant their use. He believes that more emphasis should be used in developing renewable energy, especially solar energy. The only exception involves aviation fuel which cannot be supplied by a source like an electric power plant (you can’t “plug in” and recharge a jet airliner).
