California Sets Ambitious Goals for Alternative Fuels

California could use alternative fuels such as ethanol and biodiesel to displace 26 percent of the gasoline and diesel used in California by 2022 and more than 50 percent by 2050 under an ambitious plan approved by the state's energy commission this week.

The final plan approved this week is a part of California's efforts to promote renewable fuels and to fight against global warming.

What's interesting is that the commissions seems to understand the value of biofuels. The report sums it pretty well:

Biofuels are a good option in the short term because the are available now and have petroleum reduction, waste reduction, and climate change benefits. The state should encourage and support the in‐state production of these fuels from the state’s agricultural, forestry, and urban waste residues.
