Podcast: Corn farmers defend RFS, join Fuels America

In this podcast, Greg Whitmore, a farmer from Shelby and member of the Nebraska Corn Growers Association, explains that corn farmers via the National Corn Growers Association have joined forces with a large coalition of advanced and traditional renewable fuel stakeholders to defend the Renewable Fuel Standard, or RFS.

The new coalition, called Fuels America, spans the full spectrum of agriculture, national security, renewable energy and other stakeholders.

"Ethanol and other biofuels are essential to the continued growth of rural economies," Whitmore said, "and they also play an essential role in ensuring the future of our nation."

He noted that domestically produced, renewable fuels create American jobs and increase national energy independence — they are a win-win solution to many of the energy problems facing our nation, "and we believe that it is our duty to bring this truth to our representatives in Washington and to citizens across the country."
