Science or propaganda? New hype about Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage | Hands Off Mother Earth

They assumed that all biomass is carbon neutral[1]. Amongst those scientists who have studied the carbon impacts of bioenergy, there is a now effectively a consensus that bioenergy is not in principle carbon neutral and that soil carbon losses, carbon emissions from direct and indirect land conversion and the time-delay between carbon emissions from burning wood and future carbon sequestration by new trees must be accounted for. 147 more words
