"Every child should have mud pies, grasshoppers, waterbugs, tadpoles, frogs & turtles, elderberries, wild strawberries, acorns, hickory nuts, trees to climb, animals to pet, hayfields, pine cones, rocks to roll, sand, snakes, huckleberries and hornets – and any child who has been deprived of these has been deprived of the best part of his education." -Luther Burbank 1849 - 1926

Bio-Diesel solving energy shortages

The development of alternative energy sources seems like a good idea to most people. When it comes to the practical application of that ideal, things get more difficult.

One alternative that is being explored around the world is turning locally grown crops into fuel. Bio-diesel is one such product.

Some of the benefits of using Bio-Diesel include:

  • Reducing particulate emissions by 55% and toxic emissions by 90%
  • Reduction of carbon Monoxide by 43% and Hydrocarbons by 56%
  • Reduction of ozone potential by 50% and cancer risk by 94%
  • Reduction of Carbon Dioxide, a primary contributor to global warming, by 78%
  • Increase efficiency of energy yield by 3.24 times the energy it takes to make it, vs. only 0.83 times as much for petrol-diesel.
Bio-Diesel is produced from soybeans, flaxseed, canola and other vegetable sources, which are all grown here in the US. In Germany, Bio-Diesel is available at gas station pumps and is less expensive than petroleum diesel. Bio-Diesel can power most diesel-powered vehicels and has many benefits over petroeum diesel.
