18. Are these discusssions propaganda themselves?
Here is a link to a NYT article about people already using biodiesel. We discuss this like it will happen sometime in the future. It's happening now.

http://www.nytimes.com/2006/07/05/business/05biowillie....

Seems to me that any engine that is used primarily in summer months could be converted to biodiesel: tractors, riding lawnmowers, cars, whatever.

Forget theory, forget research, look to the pragmatists!
