Re microbially produced fuels an economically viable renewable fuel source?

In this activity, you have the opportunity to create a speech applying your understanding about microbes.

Speech Topic: You are a microbiologist working for the U.S. Department of Energy and because you are an expert in microbe-produced fuels, you have been called before a congressional committee examining the feasibility of renewable energy sources.

In your own words construct a thoughtful opening statement speech that demonstrates your knowledge of this field. In your statement to the committee, please include the following:

1. a summary of the different types of microbe-produced fuels currently available, and
2. a persuasive argument to support further funding for research and development of a microbe-produced fuel that you have determined to be the most viable as an alternative to fossil fuels.

Your document should be approximately two pages in length, double-spaced in 11 point font. If you refer to sources of information besides the textbook, please be sure to cite them in the text and on a reference page using APA format.
