Are biofuels good for the environment? Or not? The EU is revising its renewable energy goals to limit biofuel production to 6%, with a goal of 2.5%.

The reason for it is because biofuel production may have a worse carbon footprint than conventional fossil fuels, as the farming releases more carbon into the atmosphere.

Nusa Urbancic, of the Transport and Environment NGO, refers to the EU's commitment to biofuels until 2020 like this:
“What is certain though is that Europeans will have to keep paying for another seven years for biofuels that pollute more than the fossil fuels they are supposed to replace.”
