TEACHING NOTES / CONTEXT FOR USE
This presentation would be very useful in a presentation about biofuels, especially for professors teaching in the Midwest, but also for those teaching in other regions. It would be a good way to open up debate as to whether biofuels are a truly sustainable resource.
Assessment is at the discretion of the educator.
