The renewable fuel standard came when the country was unsure that it could acquire enough fossil fuel to support our economic and military needs. Since then, the Alaskan oil fields, the Alaskan pipeline, better processing, new technologies for finding and drilling oil fields and secured supplies from Canada and Mexico have resulted in surpluses and removed much of our dependence on cartel managed oil supplies. Renewable fuel products do little to reduce net green house gas carbon emissions. It’s time has come and gone and shouldn’t continue to be mandated or subsidized. I think that the farmers who specialized in growing renewable fuel feed stock have done their part and should be helped in transitioning into other production- even if is in repurposing marginal farm land into managed carbon sucking hemp forests.
