Added climatic benefit from perennial bioenergy crops [Registered]

A team of researchers from Arizona State University (ASU), Stanford University and Carnegie Institution for Science have found that converting large swaths of land to bioenergy crops could have a wide range of effects on regional climate. Currently, not only in the US, there is a significant emphasis on the production of cellulosic biofuels. Nearly all of this research, though, has focused on the effects of biofulel on carbon dioxide emissions, which drive global warming. “Almost all of the work performed to date has focused on the carbon effects,” said Matei Georgescu, a climate modeler working in ASU’s Center for…
