Farming sugarcane, as a renewable source of ethanol for use as a fuel, is a common practice in Brazilian agriculture. Despite being renewable, whether ethanol use actually reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions depends on how the sugarcane is produced. Studies have shown that land use changes due to sugarcane farming are responsible for a substantial amount of the carbon emitted into the atmosphere, and may be equivalent to, or even greater than, the great “villains” of global warming–the… Expand
