... For example, this could include: - more explicit mention of biofuels production effects on agriculture, grasslands and forestry, and influence on food prices; - technology issues (e.g., cost of cellulosic ethanol; non-AFOLU fuels such as algae; use of direct air capture to produce synthetic hydrocarbon fuels) - consideration of the fossil fuels used in biofuel conversion, and their emissions - international trade in biofuel products (e.g., forest products, Brazilian ethanol)

... The confidence statement seems odd, given that the "finding" is just a sensible proposition, not a finding based on empirical evidence of decisions made with and without coproduction of the science inputs. Key Finding 2 (Integrating Human Knowledge)

... Is it the items on P752, lines 32-40? P741, Line 13 Explain what is meant by "traditional science supply paradigm." P741, Line 23 Does this mean communication with economics and the other social sciences, as well as among natural sciences?
