Biofuels Deemed a Greenhouse Threat

In a surprising discovery, researchers have found that almost all biofuels used today cause more greenhouse gas emissions than conventional fuels if the full emissions costs of producing these "green" fuels are taken into account. The benefits of biofuels have come under increasing attack in recent months, as scientists took a closer look at the global environmental cost of their production. The destruction of natural ecosystems required to grow plants for biofuels not only releases greenhouse gases into the atmosphere when they are burned and plowed, but also deprives the planet of natural sponges to absorb carbon emissions.
