The government previously targeted 10 pct ethanol blending by 2022 and 20 per cent by 2030.
As part of reworked plan on bio fuels, the ministry of road transport and highways has already published a draft notification for introducing the adoption of E20 fuel, ie, blend of 20 pct ethanol with petrol, and has sought comments from the public.
Apart from facilitating adoption of green fuel, E20 blending would also cut down India's crude oil import costs and boost the ethanol economy. (Source: IANS, PR, Punjab Times, 21 Dec., 2020)

"There is a rich history of companies using voluntary strategies that set carbon neutrality goals for their business operations. These strategies focus on deep reductions and avoidances of emissions, while using verified offsets to compensate for any remaining emissions. But Paris calls on all of us to aim higher -- to reach for that balance in sources and sinks that many are calling a net zero goal. This signals even deeper reductions and increasing amounts of removals," the report notes.

In his letter, the Governor emphasized the benefits of ethanol to the environment, the economy, and to family finances. He reminded the automakers that E15 is now available all twelve months of the year at gas stations throughout the United States. Additionally, he informed automakers about Nebraska's year-long, E30 demonstration program aimed at showing that conventional, non-flex-fuel, light-duty vehicles can safely run on E30.

"Is there climate change? Yeah. Will it go back like this, I mean will it change back? Probably."
"Well, I think we've (human activity) contributed, we certainly contribute, I mean, there's certain pollutants that go up and there's certain things that happen."
The report from NASA to the Environmental Protection Agency is the most comprehensive and up-to-date assessment published by the entire federal government. It concludes that "there is no convincing alternative explanation" for the global warming we've observed, other than human causes. The report concludes that only steep reductions in greenhouse gas emissions can alter the upward trajectory of air and ocean temperatures and their related impacts.
