[permaculture] what about lubrication?

Just this final word and I am done.

On January 24, 2008 David Fridley presented his "The Myth of Biofuels" in
Santa Cruz, California.  Before this date a letter was sent out to a mailing
list of progressives in the city asking them to boycott the presentation and
calling Mr. Fridley, in so many words, "a lying shill for the oil industry".

In this letter David Blume challenged David Fridley to a debate "anytime,
any place".  

Fortunately most people saw through this self serving attempt to shut up a
voice that raises serious questions about the whole biofuel hype.  David
Fridley has put his presentation on an open source video, I highly recommend
that everyone view his very articulate and well documented arguments.

David Fridley makes sense to me.? I hope we can retire the biofuels debate
for now. Biofuels ain't happening on a large enough scale to replace

If anyone is interested in hearing a reasoned argument against biofuels 
by an energy scientist, check out "The Myths of Biofuels" by David 
Fridley (who must be, of course, another lying shill for the oil 
industry!). A trailer is at
