Biofuel Potential

A paradigm shift needs to occur on sustainable transportation. Biomass-based biofuel is more environmentally benign that electric power because regeneratively grown biofuel can be produced while improving the environment. One would be hard-pressed to make the same claim for battery-based power. Especially when there are only 100 year supplies of lithium - making that a scarce resource that makes the current lithium battery paradigm a dead end from the evolutionary perspective. Biomass is carbon neutral.

Is biofuel possible? It would require 3% of all agriculture land, while potentially producing more food in the process:
