    THE KEY QUESTION ABOUT PLANT-BASED BIOFUELS

    A Biofuel Debate: Will Cutting Trees Cut Carbon?

    Eduardo Porter, February 10, 2015 (NY Times)

    “…[T]he European Union expects renewable energy — mostly biofuels — to account for 10 percent of its transportation fuel by 2020…[The United States biofuel] goal is about 12 percent…The International Energy Agency envisions using biofuels to supply as much of 27 percent of the world’s transportation needs by midcentury…[because current technology cannot] run cars, trucks, ships and jet planes on energy generated from wind or sun…The argument for aggressive deployment of bioenergy assumes that it is carbon-neutral because plants pull CO2 back from the air when they grow, offsetting the carbon emitted from burning them as fuel. But diverting a cornfield or a forest to produce energy requires not using it to make food or, just as important, to store carbon…The argument for caution has so far mostly fallen on deaf ears.
