For Brazil, this has been put into action. For the past 30 years, Brazil has been shifting away from gasoline to an ethanol-based transportation system and is now the world's leading maker and exporter of the biofuel. Thus far, the Brazilian authorities say, Brazil has reduced emissions by 800 million tons of CO2 thanks to ethanol. Another benefit, the delegates claim, is that ethanol micro-distilleries can help reduce poverty. Not everyone agrees with this statement.
