The Economics of Alternative Energy Sources and Globalization


According to a national poll released by the Renewable Fuels Now Coalition, 74 percent of Americans believe that using domestically-produced renewable fuels should be increased. In addition, 87 percent maintain that the federal government should actively support the development of a U.S. renewable fuels industry, and 77 percent think that the U.S. Congress should encourage oil refiners to blend more ethanol into their gasoline products. Ranking ethanol for reducing greenhouse gas emission, 75 percent view it as somewhat important and 41 percent view it as extremely important (Schmitz et al., 2010). This volume contains papers that deal with the pros and cons of producing biofuels. © 2013 Bentham Science Publishers. All Rights Reserved.
