One reason the biodiesel production has become such a high priority is that many middle eastern countries control the flow of oil all around the world, and this can put the United States at a disadvantage when it comes to the supply of fossil fuels. Biodiesel is grown and produced locally, right here on US lands, so there is no need to depend on a foreign country or hostile government simply to get the energy we need in the form of oil. The Iran Oil Embargo of the seventies has shown that not all oil producing countries are led by reasonable men. Instead of depending on foreign countries, American farmers can grow the feedstock needed, without cutting into any food crops grown. Some feedstocks for this biofuel can be grown on land that is not suitable for food crops, so there is no need to worry that the large scale biodiesel production will take from the food chain or cause hunger anywhere in the world. It is not possible to continue the way we have in the past without making some drastic changes, to save both the earth and the environment. Switching to biodiesel can be the change needed for a better world and a promising energy future.
