Biofuels make climate change worse -
Scientists have produced damning evidence to suggest that BIOFUELS COULD BE ONE OF THE BIGGEST ENVIRONMENTAL CON-TRICKS because they actually make global warming worse by adding to the man-made emissions of carbon dioxide that they are supposed to curb. Two separate studies show that a range of biofuel crops now being grown to produce "green" alternatives to oil-based fossil fuels release far more carbon dioxide into the air than can be absorbed by the growing plants. Studies looked at how much carbon dioxide is released when a piece of land is converted into a biofuel crop. They found that when peat lands in Indonesia are converted into palm-oil plantations, for instance, it would take 423 years to pay off the carbon debt. "In finding solutions to climate change, we must ensure that the cure is not worse than the disease."
