Kenya's Jatropha

Kenya was recently planning on growing 50,00 Jatropha plants near Malindi to produce bio fuels. This was opposed when the amount of greenhouse gasses was added up.They found out that the amount of gases out-weighs the amount of bio fuel that it could produce. A Jatropha is a species of a flowering plant, that is a poisonous semi-evergreen shrub. The seeds contain oil that can be processed into bio fuel to run a standard diesel engine.
