On Thursday, June 7, 2007, please join Post Carbon Santa Clara Valley for a presentation by David Fridley entitled "The Myths of Biofuels." This promises to be a very important and timely presentation while Silicon Valley considers new ventures in green energy technologies.

The presentation will address the following questions:
• What is the energy return for biofuels vs. the energy used to produce them?
• What is the environmental impact of biofuels production?
• Do biofuels have a future?
• Are biofuels a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels?


David Fridley has 25 years of experience working and living in China. Prior to 1993, Mr. Fridley led the China Energy Project at the East-West Center in Hawaii primarily in the area of petroleum supply and demand, refinery analysis and modeling, international oil trade and energy policy. Since 1995, Mr. Fridley has been a staff scientist and leader of the China Energy Group at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in Berkeley,
California, where his work involves extensive collaboration with the Chinese on end-use energy efficiency, industrial energy use, government energy management programs, data compilation and analysis, medium and long term energy policy research. He is very involved in issues surrounding the potential problems associated with peak oil.

Post Carbon Santa Clara Valley is a group of valley residents who are advocating relocalization strategies for Silicon Valley in response to the peaking of world oil supplies and U.S. natural gas supplies. We are an outpost of the Post Carbon Institute’s (http://www.postcarbon.org) Relocalization Network (http://www.relocalize.net/groups/santaclara).
