DO YOUR PART FOR GLOBAL WARMING!!!!

The U.S. spends 60-80 billion dollars a year “defending” oil interests
in the gulf region.  Every year, U.S. businesses throw away enough
waste vegetable oil to replace 10% of the petroleum products consumed in
the country.

Be a part of the solution.  Drive your car on a renewable resource:
vegetable oil.

While an ordinary diesel engine can run on biodiesel (vegetable oil that
has been processed with lye & methanol), that same engine can be
converted to use pure filtered vegetable oil with no additional
processing or toxic substances.

Burning vegetable oil or biodiesel in your engine reduces emissions
dramatically & is carbon neutral, in fact more carbon is absorbed in the

process of making vegetable oil than is released from the tailpipe!

Come learn how it’s done from leaders in the sustainability movement,
Capra J'neva of the Permaculture Institute of Northern California,
Kingsley Chen of EcoEnergies, Scott Beckett of Caritas Creek & SPECIAL
GUEST: Girl Mark of DIY Skillshare teaching biodiesel
making!  During the course we will do a hands-on conversion of a Toyota
truck from start to finish, learn to make small batches of biodiesel,
and get the facts about alternative fuel emissions and viability.
