But when it comes to showing the world how to go green and reduce the use of fossil fuels, Iceland has a lot to teach us. The country has transformed itself from being largely dependent on coal and oil 30-40 years ago to being essentially independent of all fossil fuels today. The only fossil fuels burned in the entire country are for powering automobiles and boats.

In parallel, I saw an article about grants being offered to high schools in Kentucky to design projects to teach, produce and use biofuels in their schools and community. This is an excellent, low cost program to promote awareness of the potential for biofuels and increase general knowledge about how they are produced. The funds are especially geared toward training and start-up costs for setting up local biodiesel production to turn waste oil from cooking into usable fuel.

Biofuels such as butanol will be more comparable to gasoline in energy content. If the cost can be brought down to the same level as gasoline, significant displacement of petroleum derived transportation fuel will take place.

Thus, fossil fuels still dominate energy supply. Coal and natural gas are major sources of fuel for power plants. Bringing more energy production on stream from solar power, wind power, and geothermal sources can offset a large fraction of the fossil fuels now burned to create electricity. The transportation sector is almost ready for larger impacts from renewable energy in the form of biofuels.
