We would have to replace every square inch of farm ground and more to grow enough crops to convert to fuels - leaving no room for food production.

I think the idea of fuel efficiency is somewhat relative. If I have a Hummer and drive it 2000 miles a year for my annual sojourn to the backcountry of Alaska am I a 'bad' person?
<Yes, if it's a H1, but not as much as you are stupid. Gas is really expensive there so look into something more efficient- a ford 150 still gets better gas mileage.>
What if I drive my Toyota Prius 40,000 miles annually as I commute from Marin to Palo Alto.
<Glad you drive a Prius, but you should look into something a little closer to work if you can. Some people can drive less in their job- I can't! Better fuel efficiency is my only resort!>
Carbon taxes such as the one's suggested on these sites seems to look at the issue.
<Oh Boy! here come the Carbon Police! Don't need no stinkin' Carbon Pigs just higher prices will motivate the system. Perhaps the oil industry is doing America a favor?>
