The Biofuels Debate

Bill Scher

The issue of biofuels is hotly debated even among those advocating a clean energy future. I got two opposing perspectives outside the convention hall, inside the BIg Tent yesterday.

First, I spoke with Josh Boger of the Biotechnology Industrial Organization and political consultant Joe Trippi, who made a case that biofuels can be pursued without adversely impacting food prices.

Then, David Roberts of Grist.org offered an analysis skeptical that biofuels could be developed in an environmentally sound and cost-effective way.

What say you?
