Talking Ethanol w/ David Blume

Anyone interested in alcohol as a fuel (engine fuel, cooking fuel, lighting fuel...) probably knows of David Blume.

I've met him several times. He wrote the BIBLE of ethanol.
His web page is Welcome to Alcohol Can Be a Gas! | Permaculture & Alcohol Can Be A Gas

Here's a YouTube post of a recent radio program he was on.

In it, he mentions that some of his students threw a "Renewable Energy Birthday Party" for him. I was there. It was fun. We all did short presentations on whatever we have been working on; electric cars, ethanol, algae-fuel, gasifiers, permaculture, and more. It was pretty cool.

Listen to the radio program, and checkout his web page. He's a smart guy who's really thought all this stuff out.
