Growth Energy Statement on Biden Executive Order to Tackle the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad, Create Jobs, and Restore Scientific Integrity Across Federal Government

Thu, 28 Jan 2021 06:42:08 CST

Growth Energy Statement on Biden Executive Order to Tackle the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad, Create Jobs, and Restore Scientific Integrity Across Federal Government Following yesterday's sweeping executive order focused on tackling the climate crisis at home and abroad, creating jobs, and restoring scientific integrity across federal government signed by President Biden, Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor issued the following statement:

“This executive order is another reminder of how inextricably linked addressing climate change is to our economy, and we're eager to help President Biden’s administration deliver on his promise to unleash biofuels as a key solution to climate change and restore economic opportunity for rural America.

“Ethanol plays a critical role in reducing the impact of the transportation sector on climate and achieving net-zero emissions. Just this week groundbreaking research led by David MacIntosh, Chief Science Officer of Environmental Health & Engineering, Inc. (EH&E) and Adjunct Associate Professor of Environmental Health at Harvard, found that greenhouse gas emissions from corn ethanol are 46% lower than gasoline, and last week, analysis by the Rhodium Group concluded that biofuels must be in the mix if we are to attain net-zero emissions by 2050.

“Importantly, ethanol is a homegrown, ready solution now that improves air quality by replacing toxic fuel additives and dramatically reduces emissions of pollutants that most adversely impact our most vulnerable communities. We need to quickly transition to fuels that burn cleaner, pollute less, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions while brining farmers into the fold of addressing climate change and helping the rural economy. We look forward to partnering with the President and his Administration to do just that with biofuels.”
