Bioenergy cropland expansion could be as bad for biodiversity as climate change

Frankfurt am Main, Germany, 12/11/2018. Nature is one of the beneficiaries of climate protection measures, among which bioenergy has long been touted as a potential savior. However, to reach the 1.5 degree goal, bioenergy crops will have to be cultivated on a large scale. New models now show that this will lead to the destruction of more habitats of vertebrate species than would benefit from lessened climate change effects. These findings by researchers from the German Senckenberg Biodiversity and Climate Research Centre, the Technical University in Munich and the Durham University have been published yesterday in the scientific journal “Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.” The presumed advantages of such climate protection measures would therefore be of no benefit to biodiversity.
