At Springboard Biodiesel, we spend a lot of time addressing ill-informed, mis-informed and maliciously deceitful opinions regarding biodiesel. As a result, we are tired of hearing about ill-informed car salesman, myopic fleet managers and "my dad's friend"s belittling biodiesel and hinting that use of the "stuff" could void your warranty.

I recently had the opportunity to present at a TEDx event here in Chico. It isn't every day I am asked to speak about my favorite topic with the camera running, so I'd thought I'd post it here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y5sCV614ksk&list=PLsRNoUx8w3rM_JidyF-ZObD...

Happy to hear feedback or answer any questions you may have.

It remains surprising to me that the climate change issue remains utterly unaddressed by global policy makers. As the climate continues to warm and the oceans continue to acidify and it becomes more difficult to ignore the extreme environmental events that are becoming commonplace, we are left to wonder why change is so slow in coming?

There is a raging political debate that is consuming the airwaves of late - apparently 4 guys in North Carolina and 3 women in Nevada can't tell the difference between the presidential candidates positions on.....just about everything (Early on, I was taught to avoid political discussions in new business settings, and I treat these posts as new business settings. I want the readers to evaluate the substance of biodiesel, rather than the ephemeral policy of biodiesel. So, I will attempt to employ objectivity from here on).

I read this article last night (hold on; it's linked at the bottom). I kept having to put it down, as I was almost physically agitated by the palpable hypocrisy that oozes from the pages.

Today, May 31st, the AP reported that Carbon Dioxide levels had reached 400 parts per million. That's bad. The last time CO2 levels were that high was 15 MILLION YEARS AGO! And it was hotter then.

It was quite a week last week, as we drove from Chico to Chicago and back in order to participate in the [other] NRA national conference. Why drive? Hmmm, well this year we were honored and excited to be highlighted as a Kitchen Innovation Awardee, and so we had two booths rather than one, which meant we had a lot of equipment to deliver and set up, and at the time, the journey did not seem quite so......distant.

I have recently been talking to a lot of college, university and even high school administrators, and I am optimistic the upcoming school year will see a surge in small-scale biodiesel production at the campus level. There are plenty of good reasons for this increased focus on biodiesel.

I'm just back from the [other] NRA show, where no guns where needed, but a healthy appetite was demanded. It was Springboard Biodiesel's first National Restaurant Association conference, and we were impressed. Thousands of restaurant owners and hundreds of companies that sell to those restaurant owners were collected together in a sea of stainless steel equipment, free food samples and innovative restaurant ideas.
