An aviation industry now grasping for profits is resorting to algae and nuts to fuel a comeback. It may seem like weird science, but with oil prices pushing through the $150 a barrel barrier, biofuels made from alternative sources are no longer far-fetched. Experts say however, they will take years to develop and no one will be soaring through the skies on farm-fuelled jets any time soon.

"If you don't have targets, you don't make progress" in combating climate change, he said. The European Commission denied biofuels were helping push up...

By Lawrence T. Beckerle It's a little amusing to listen to West Virginia politicians and editors speak out against the federal subsidies to produce more biofuels. More than that, it's sad because it's a sure sign that they don't understand what is going on. The move toward biofuels is by stringent pollution-control standards. For a few years, automakers were able to postpone ever more stringent standards by showing the pollution-control equipment wouldn't work with the sulfur levels that...

mallemaroking
