Commission sued over biofuels as suspicions mount

Europe's biofuels policy could cause unwanted side-effects equal to as much as 1.5 billion tonnes of greenhouse gases - roughly the annual emissions of Russia or India, official reports warn. That means biofuels could produce more carbon emissions than gasoline over a 20-year time frame. The impact assessment emerged as climate campaigners sued the European Commission for withholding a different tranche of data on the negative consequences of fuels from crops such as maize, wheat and palm oil. "Our efforts to understand and influence EU biofuel policy have been repeatedly hampered by attempts to restrict access to documents," activist lawyer Tim Grabiel of ClientEarth said as he launched the court action.
