Scientists Praveen Kumar and Meredith Richardson of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign published their findings this week in the American Geophysical Union journal Earth's Future. The results show that using biofuel corn doesn't completely offset the environmental effects of producing that corn. ...
