The article focuses on the final rule, indirect land use, of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in the implementation of the Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS). It says the increasing renewable fuels like ethanol will lessen the dependence on oil and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It mentions the controversy arises from the last rule which posits that increased biofuel demand would increase grain acreage demand worldwide and would negatively affect food production and the environment.
