[NEWS] Debate Over Whether Ethanol Contributing to Decline in Bee Habitat
– September 8, 2016, WNAX
A new study from the National Academy of Sciences says the expansion of corn and soybean acres to supply feed stock for biofuels is hampering habitat for bees. Renewable Fuels Association President Bob Dinneen says the study findings don’t make sense and are based on flawed information.
He says the Renewable Fuels Standard or RFS wouldn’t even be in force if acres were expanded at the rate the National Academy of Sciences suggests in their study.
Dinneen says reasonable groups don’t believe the study because it is way off-base.
