A report from the National Academies questioning U.S. biofuel targets is a "perfect example" of the "can't-do attitude surrounding energy innovation and domestic renewable fuels," according to Bob Dinneen, president and CEO of the Renewable Fuels Association. The report is "a rehash of every criticism leveled against American ethanol production and more fodder for the environmental, meat, fast food and oil lobbies to dismiss the innovation and evolution of the industry," Dinneen writes. "Instead of wringing our hands about the challenges associated with revolutionizing our energy supply, we should embrace the challenge in a manner that only Americans can."
