caution! [#94]
While 'dangling the carrot before the horse' may be enticing or even lucrative in terms of economic development for Indigenous people, all the pros and cons need to be fleshed out.  Indigenous people may jump at biofuel opportunities because it may mean meeting ends for basic necessities.
