Bioenergy production from marginal lands

The conflicting interests related to biofuel production has been termed as "The food, energy and environment trilemma."  It looks like we might only have a dilemma between energy and environment now, if we can sustainably grow biofuel on marginal lands instead of agricultural land, as suggested by a recent Nature article.   Using long-term/20-year period data, this is "the first convincing study" of the impact of biofuel-production systems on climate change.
