Quotes

...Thus Professor David Pimentel, professor of ecology and agriculture at 43-Nobel-Laureate Cornell University, New York : "There is just no energy benefit to using plant biomass for liquid fuel. These strategies are not sustainable… The United State desperately needs a liquid fuel replacement for oil in the near future but producing ethanol or biodiesel from plant biomass is going down the wrong road, because you use more energy to produce these fuels than you get out from the combustion of these products… The government spends more than $3 billion a year to subsidize ethanol production when it does not provide a net energy balance or gain, is not a renewable energy source or an economical fuel. Further, its production and use contribute to air water and soil pollution and global warming…Ethanol production in the United States does not benefit the nation's energy security, its agriculture, economy or the environment. Ethanol production requires large fossil energy input, and therefore, it is contributing to oil and natural gas imports and U S deficits” [5]."
"But then you have to take air pollution and carbon dioxide into account as well … then you clearly see the enormous advantages of gas" he said
...poorer countries, regions and communities – and it must both deliver climate and development outcomes," says Adrian Rimmer, CEO of Gold Standard. "Our goal is to drive finance into thousands more projects that will help to mitigate climate change and bring development benefits to millions of people in Sudan and around the world."
"It needs to make people investigate and use alternative land and animal management systems."
