The Obama administration has given high priority to development of alternative energy sources. Biofuels are increasingly being used as an alternative to fossil fuels and, as a result, global biofuel production tripled from 2000 to 2007. Through objective overviews, primary sources, and full-color illustrations this title examines Can Biofuels Reduce Dependence on Fossil Fuels? How Do Biofuels Affect the Environment? Does Biofuel Production Threaten the World Food Supply? What Is the Future of Biofuels?

The organization will appeal to researchers with limited prior knowledge, as the books begin with “At a Glance” summaries and then expand to chapter-length discussions. Chapters pose questions (“How Do Biofuels Affect the Environment?”), explore the issues in a clear narrative, and conclude with sections of primary-source quotes, compact facts, and informative illustrations. Deforestation feels like the odd man out, but it clearly explains the problems with the use of wood as a fuel, and describes efforts to change that trend.
