Barack Obama Supports Biofuels

Barack Obama Food vs Fuel Ethanol EnergyThe US presidential campaign season is heating up faster than the price of a barrel of oil. We continue to highlight the leading presidential candidates' position on renewable energy.

Two points from Obama's official website are interesting to note:

"Develop the Next Generation of Biofuels
Barack Obama will work to ensure that advanced biofuels, including cellulosic ethanol, are developed and incorporated into our national supply as soon as possible. Corn ethanol is the most successful alternative fuel commercially available in the U.S. today, and we should fight the efforts of big oil and big agri-business to undermine this emerging industry

Expand Locally-Owned Biofuel Refineries
Less than 10 percent of new ethanol production today is from farmer owned refineries. New ethanol refineries help jumpstart rural economies....Barack Obama believes we must ensure that local investment continues to play a significant role as the biofuels industry continues to expand and evolve."
Finally, Senator Obama recently appeared at an ethanol plant opening/tour in Iowa. Dr. Zeiger from the Fields to Fuel Institute has a video of his remarks made that day, available HERE.

And as always, does not support or endorse any candidate for any office. But we'll sure tell you what they're saying about renewable fuels!
