The only way you are going to reduce CO2 production 60% is to give up everything, live in a cave, eat grass hoppers and grubs.
Funny thing is about 99% of these so called believers believe in it so much they arent willing to give up anything, not a single thing to "save the world", aside from using it as a justification for buying them selves a shiny new hybrid.
That's a good point, we see too much finger-pointing but usually the ones who propose something to "save the world" are actually nothing more than a bunch of attention-seekers. Regarding corn residues (or any other agricultural residue) as a feedstock for biofuels, it seems to make more sense than using nukes and coal-fed powerplants to charge the batteries of an electric or a plug-in hybrid.
