Path to sustainable bioenergy will require a new roadmap

The National Wildlife Federation has released a new policy paper - "Growing a Green Energy Future: A Primer and Vision for Sustainable Biomass Energy" - that concludes that the U.S. can do much more to improve the conservation and environmental performance of bioenergy production.

The new report calls for strong agriculture and energy policies that create jobs, curb global warming pollution, enhance national security, protect wildlife and uphold soil and water quality. Harvesting plant-based crops to produce energy to power cars, homes, businesses and communities has long been recognized as an important strategy for helping the nation transition away from fossil fuels and toward an economy based on clean, renewable sources of energy.
