U.S. URGED TO PROMOTE FUELS MADE FROM CROPS
The United States should promote alternative fuels made from crops such as switchgrass and sugar cane to reduce dependence on oil from the unstable Middle East,former CIA chief R.James Woolsey told Congress on Thursday. (Woosley lobbies for North American Hemp Association).
Increased use of such fuels would allow the United States to reduce its foreign policy preoccupation-as well as military expenditures-on such nations as Iran and Iraq while earning up to $12 billion for American farmers,Woolsey told the Senate Agriculture Committee.
