“ALL-of-the-Above” Except Biofuels
by Robert E. Kozak (Advanced Biofuels USA) Here’s the President’s new energy policy.
“This country needs an all-out, all-of-the-above strategy that develops every available source of American energy – a strategy that’s cleaner, cheaper, and full of new jobs”.
Okay that sounds good. “All-of-the-above” surely sounds like that would include biofuels. So, let’s do a search of the 7,089 words of the speech. Hmm. I must have entered the search term wrong. Let me try it again. No, the same result. 7,089 words, “biofuel” or “biofuels” are NOT included.
Certainly a contrast to the focus on biofuels provided by President George W. Bush in his “switchgrass” State of the Union speech.
So what does President Obama mean when he says, All-Of-The-Above?
Let’s search for natural gas. Ah! That’s what All-Of-The-Above means!
“We have a supply of natural gas that can last America nearly one hundred years, and my Administration will take every possible action to safely develop this energy. Experts believe this will support more than 600,000 jobs by the end of the decade.”
I wonder if those experts are the same experts whom Obama quoted in 2008 and 2009 saying there would be a million electric cars on the road in the US by 2015 (less than 15,000 were sold last year)?
