Hi Eric,
I'm looking forward to reading your new book!
I was wondering what your views are on biodiesel and production of? Thanks!

Hi Maggie, good question. In short: most energy needs to come from clean source like solar wind and water, but some can come from biofuels, including biodiesel. I'm particularly interested in producing biodiesel from perennial crops to get the double impact of carbon sequestration and emissions reduction. I have a list in the book and on the website of perennial, inedible "industrial oil" crops that are strong candidates for biodiesel production, as well as for bioplastics, vehicular and industrial lubricants, and more. Eric
