Scientists find significant greenhouse gas reductions assoicated with biofuel crop systems

"We have performed a unique analysis of the net biofuel greenhouse emissions from major biofuel cropping systems by combining ecosystem computer model data with estimates of the amount fossil fuels used to grow and produce crops for biofuels."
