"...[C]reating energy roadmaps is serious business and in that context it would be very irresponsible to underestimate the decline of fossil fuels. Unfortunately, information about fossil fuel reserves available from governments and industry is unreliable and/or deceptively misleading. Use of such information as a foundation for renewable energy policy is dangerous."
"... Brazil already gets over 40 percent of its light transportation fuel from ethanol derived from sugar cane, and studies in the United States indicate that this largest of all oil consumers could grow well over half its liquid fuels using advanced new technologies that are expected to be commercialized in the next decade."
Is this believable? See Sugar Cane and Alcohol in Brazil
