There is a vast array of misinformation out there regarding ethanol’s impact on the environment and food prices. I’ll enjoy the opportunity to detail the environmental benefits of ethanol and dispel the food vs. fuel myth. -Geoff Cooper
(PRWEB) November 06, 2014
Bobby Likis, automotive expert and host of nationally syndicated car-talk program “Bobby Likis Car Clinic,” will share the microphone with Geoff Cooper, Senior Vice President of the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA), on Car Clinic’s live globalcast on Saturday, November 8, at 11:25a ET. In addition to overseeing market analysis and policy research, Cooper provides regulatory support and strategic planning for the association and its members. Cooper’s extensive background in the ethanol industry enables him to educate the public on the benefits of renewable fuels with special focus on issues related to lifecycle analysis, sustainability and ethanol co-products.
Cooper will speak to an array of topics including the truth behind the fictional food vs. fuel argument, as well as the hot button issue of greenhouse gas – or GHG – emissions and the role ethanol plays in reducing their output into the ozone. Cooper will also share with Car Clinic audiences the benefits and the commercialization of cellulosic ethanol.
Says Cooper, “There is a vast array of misinformation out there regarding ethanol’s impact on the environment and food prices. I’ll enjoy the opportunity to detail the environmental benefits of ethanol and dispel the food vs. fuel myth.” He continues, “RFA recently conducted a study that shows while corn prices have plummeted, food prices have remained steady or have risen. The petroleum industry would like to pin any increase in food prices on the ethanol industry when in fact it is oil that drives food prices.”
Likis comments, “Car Clinic is where consumers go for straight talk. Geoff will face ethanol myths head on and substantiate the truth with facts.”
