Dr. Rob Myers, director of the Thomas Jefferson Agricultural Institute, and Roger Beachy, president of the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center, have invited their peers in the scientific community to sign a declaration in support of biodiesel. Here are some facts:
- The declaration states that scientists “believe that biodiesel can reduce dependence on petroleum, help address climate change and boost domestic economies.”
- Scientists who sign the declaration also pledge to support and fight for further investment and research in biodiesel.
- More than 80 scientists have signed the declaration since it was announced earlier this year.
