“Let us set as our national goal, in the spirit of Apollo, with the determination of the Manhattan Project, that by the end of this decade we will have developed the potential to meet our own energy needs without depending on any foreign energy source.” – Richard Nixon November 7, 1973

This recent comprehensive academic Biofuels review (2010-01) shows that we are not only no closer to the goal, but that as the result of powerful lobbies, the US Government continues to direct funding to Ethanol that still only show a 1.1x positive energy return and biodiesel products from soybeans that do not make sense in our economy.
