Study: Ethanol Emissions Understated

Another lie in the big “green friendly” ethanol scam.

A new report disputes the purportedly eco-friendly benefits of biofuels like ethanol.

The report out of England shows that biofuels from corn and rapeseed create 50 to 70 percent more greenhouse gases than oil. Corn is the prime crop for biofuel in the U.S. and is used in the production of ethanol.

Scientists from Britain, the U.S., and Germany found that the use of biofuels released twice as much nitrous-oxide as previously realized. And they found that three to five percent of the nitrogen in fertilizer was converted and emitted, compared to the two percent figure used by the U.N.’s International Panel on Climate Change.
