Khosla and Daschle call to set America free

In their New York Times oped yesterday, Tom Daschle, the former Democratic Senate majority leader, and Vinod Khosla, prominent venture capitalist and one of the founders of Sun Microsystems write: "Our national leadership must promote a market-based shift away from petroleum-based fuels toward renewable fuels produced in America with American technology [...] First, it could set America free from its dependence on foreign oil. As Brazil's "energy independence miracle" proves, an aggressive strategy of investing in petroleum substitutes like ethanol can end dependence on imported oil."
