Increasing production of biofuels to combat climate change will release between two and nine times more carbon gases over the next 30 years than fossil fuels, according to the first comprehensive analysis of emissions from biofuels.

well I don't know,.. but I guess it is to late to turn that agribusiness boat around. As I would think most people would not have a clue as to what the truth is since it is pushed so much as better for the environment.

Another aspect that this article doesn't touch on is the cost factor both in money and CO2. It costs $1.20 per gallon to produce $1.00 of bio-fuel and the production process requires the burning of fossil fuels to make the bio-fuel. Take that same land and plant trees and you reduce CO2 levels by a much larger margin.
