Teaching the Mayor to make bio!
A few weeks ago I had the honor of showing Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels how to make biodiesel! The event was part of the Mayor's initiative to address global warming, Seattle Climate Action NOW- see http://www.seattlecan.org/ and he did a few presentations in different neighborhoods throughout the day. The biodiesel presentation was organized by General/Standard Biodiesel in the Chinatown neighborhood, to demonstrate how the local restaurant oil can be (and is) converted to biodiesel.. After the Mayor shook up a pop bottle batch, he poured some finished bio into a generator that was powering a popcorn popper for visitors.
