Biofuels can be a bigger part of green energy

By Coalition For Renewable Natural Gas, The Sacramento Bee.

Despite California’s leadership in green energy promotion, our state is a woefully lopsided net importer of clean biofuels. 

State lawmakers have a golden opportunity to correct this unfortunate paradox by negotiating a follow-up budget provision that invests some of the state’s cap-and-trade revenues in California-produced biofuels. Without impacting the general fund, such a move would cut air pollution, combat climate change, treat our petroleum addiction, improve public health and create green jobs in California’s economically depressed inland communities.
