TUESDAY DECEMBER 18 | ENVIRONMENT & NATURAL RESOURCES Member-Led Forum of the Commonwealth Club of California:
DAVID FRIDLEY, Energy Scientist, Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory

Biofuels are promised as the energy of the future but, already,
unwanted consequences of pursuing such a future are emerging. For
example, the American thirst for transportation liquids has diverted
more than a fifth of our corn crop to ethanol production and the push
in Europe and Asia toward biodiesel blends has accelerated
deforestation in Indonesia and Malaysia. Fridley will discuss the role
of biofuels in the world's transportation systems and offer solutions.
