A new petition has been launched today to help encourage the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to support biofuels development. The petition is sponsored by Frontiers of Freedom, who says that advanced biofuels allow America to reduce its dependence on foreign sources of oil while simultaneously exploring next generation biofuels. Frontiers of Freedom also say that renewable energy can and should be produced in the U.S. and production would create jobs.
“When we fill our cars with gasoline, we contribute to the global demand for petroleum and give money to our enemies,” said Frontiers of Freedom President, George Landrith. “As a nation committed to liberty and freedom, we must find alternatives to foreign oil.”
In a statement from the organization, producing biofuels domestically will keep our energy dollars at home. In addition, the U.S. sends an estimated billion dollars a day oversees to import oil from the Middle East and other parts of the world. “It is time to return that money into our back pockets and keep it out of the hands of the world’s worst tyrants,” said the statement.
Frontiers of Freedom believes that in a short time, American innovation will create energy that is cheaper and more plentiful than oil. However, the only way to achieve this is to remain committed and invest in advanced biofuel technologies, and “this journey begins with the EPA exhibiting the courage to promote and advance biofuel development.”
