dge National Laboratory write that despite recent claims to the contrary, plant-based fuels developed in economically and environmentally sensible ways can contribute significantly to the nation's -- indeed, the world's -- energy security while providing a host of benefits for many people worldwide.
Also in the Spring 2009 Issues:
In the Zone: Comprehensive Ocean Protection. Carrie Kappel of the University of California, Santa Barbara, and colleagues write that comprehensive ecosystem-based zoning could address many of the critical problems with U.S. ocean policy by providing a mechanism for coordinated management of ocean uses that takes into account the cumulative effects of multiple human activities.
Closing the Environmental Data Gap. Robin O'Malley, Anne Marsh, and Christine Negra of the Heinz Center in Washington, DC, write that information limitations are severely constraining our ability to identify and understand emerging environmental problems, devise interventions to address them, and evaluate whether our responses work.
Finally, Michael Crow, the president of Arizona State University, writes about the key challenge facing the Obama administration science team, and Robert Hahn of the American Enterprise Institute and Peter Passell of the Milken Institute argue that the task of limiting climate change will be more difficult in both political and economic terms than is generally understood.
