The Obama administration has given high priority to development of alternative energy sources. Biofuels are increasingly being used as an alternative to fossil fuels and, as a result, global biofuel production tripled from 2000 to 2007. Through objective overviews, primary sources, and full-color illustrations this title examines Can Biofuels Reduce Dependence on Fossil Fuels? How Do Biofuels Affect the Environment? Does Biofuel Production Threaten the World Food Supply? What Is the Future of Biofuels?
