Editor’s Notes

AHB just held its fifth annual meeting in September. Those in attendance heard interesting success stories and discussed the future of AHB and bioenergy. In this edition of AHB News, see what the attendees are willing to pay for biofuels at the pump and to fly on biojet fuel.

Let’s play! Read how OSU got high school students excited about bioenergy topics by using a strategy game.

¿Hablas español? If not, that’s ok. Two groups of Extension-trained volunteers are conducting energy literacy outreach to the general public (in English) and Latino communities (in Spanish).

If you’re concerned about the potential spread of GMOs, you should be pleased by a discovery made by the Strauss lab at OSU. They’ve demonstrated a method for preventing genetically engineered poplar trees from developing flowers.

We’d like to thank Betsy Fradd for her hard work in developing the previous newsletters. We miss her on the Extension Team, but the show (that is, newsletter) must go on! I greatly enjoyed editing this edition, and look forward to helping share your stories in the future.

Happy reading!
