August 27 2012
We are writing to caution against granting a waiver for the federal Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). A number of groups and some governors seem to believe that the RFS is a substantial part of the equation when it comes to grain prices, and waiving the program this year or next will ease the impact of the drought on consumers. There is substantial evidence to the contrary.

The Obama administration's Carbon Pollution Emission Guidelines for Existing Stationary Sources: Electric Utility Generating Units missed an opportunity to give industry clear guidance that using sustainable biomass mitigates greenhouse gas emissions by recycling atmospheric carbon.
