more acres 01/14/2011 @ 10:05am "We need more acres" but Indirect Land Use Change (ILUC) has been labeled by policy makers and biofuel proponents as "bad science". Hmmmm. How do you reconcile this? Seems that high grain prices will offset poorer yields or upfront expenses of taking marginal ground into crop production. That's how you get more acres. That's also the definition of ILUC, right? So, where's the "bad science" in ILUC?
