Response to Science Papers by Fargione, et al., and Searchinger, et al.

Life cycle analysis (LCA) is an internationally-recognized procedure for determining the environmental impacts of products and processes. LCA follows specific standards (e.g., ISO 14040 series) so that the both the procedure itself and the analytical results are transparent, verifiable and credible. We use LCA in combination with biophysical agroecosystem models to better understand and then improve the environmental performance of biofuels and bioproducts (refs).
