June 25 -EPA barrier to reducing Greenhouse Gases in biofuels

Biofuels=tricky subject. Acknowledging that upfront and without going into the relative merits/demerits of different products used in the process, it IS a worthy pursuit.

Bi-partisan legislation, the Growing Climate Solutions Act, aims to help farmers, through carbon credits, increase their involvement in renewable fuels. It seems the EPA is being responsive to oil refiners asking for retroactive exemptions to requirements that they blend biofuels into their products.  Senate hearings were held yesterday, so this could turn into good news. So-called “carbon farming” in its embryonic state should be encouraged and the EPA should do more to get behind it.
