[biofuelwatch] Best Breakdown of Bioenergy Carbon Cycle That I've Seen





Usually scientists aren't very good at communicating their research to the public in a way that is accessible (maybe part of the reason why there are so many climate change deniers?), but this recent interview with Timothy Searchinger out of Princeton University does the best job of any piece I've seen explaining the whole bioenergy carbon issue.

Definitely recommend reading it and if you ever need to debunk the whole "carbon neutral" biomass argument, this is the best explanation I've seen, by a well-respected scientist with unimpeachable credentials, and with his own peer-reviewed studies to back it up. As good as it gets.

Biofuels are a wide range of fuels which are in some way derived from biomass.

Your idea?
