Today's Presidential Action

Today, President Bush Delivered Remarks On Energy Policy In West Point, Virginia, At A Production Facility For Biodiesel. The President stressed the need to promote greater energy independence through the use of renewable energy sources like biodiesel and ethanol and new technologies like clean diesel.

Background: Moving Towards Greater Energy Independence Through Biodiesel And Clean Diesel Technologies

Homegrown Energy Sources Like Biodiesel Can Improve Our Energy Security. Farm products and food waste like soybeans and recycled cooking grease can produce biodiesel, a clean-burning automotive fuel. Biodiesel delivers economic benefits by supporting American farmers, not foreign oil producers, and it produces less pollution.

President Bush's Policies Encourage The Use Of Renewable Fuels Like Biodiesel And Ethanol.

Hybrid And Clean Diesel Vehicles Can Reduce Our Demand For Foreign Oil. Energy efficient hybrid and clean diesel vehicles offer the same features consumers desire, but travel much further on a gallon of fuel than conventional vehicles.
