U.S. biodiesel is NOT the cause of increasing food costs. The “perfect storm” of many factors, ranging from rising energy costs to unfavorable weather, is blinding eyes to the facts. Biodiesel helps redefine the future of energy security, the environment and the economy. At the same time, U.S. biodiesel production is actually driving increased production and thereby cutting the cost of soybean meal—an excellent protein source for hungry humans and animals. Biodiesel is truly a rising tide lifting many ships.
