A presentation on the current state of electric cars, biofuels and mass transit. Industry leaders have been invited and may share their efforts. What is the current state of electric cars and the infrastructure for their support? See information on turning hybrids into plug-in electric vehicles. Are mass transit systems pursuing the best strategies? Are biofuels necessarily impacting food supplies? Are governments doing the right thing in regards to biodiesel, WVO (waste vegetable oil) and alcohol/ethanol production? These and more will be addressed.

I will be driving my carbon neutral biodiesel Mercedes to the event. My total expenditure for the car is less than $3,000 and it is as safe and better than hybrids in many ways. See how you too can get on the WVO band wagon, lessen your dependency on and cost of fossil fuels.

Hopefully, we can receive permission to show the movie "Who Killed the Electric Car" at the event.

Should be able to bring some more pumpkin pie and teas that were enjoyed at earlier events. If you would like to bring some refreshments, please contact me directly to coordinate.

If there is time I will share the recent adjustments to my slowly developing windmill electricity generator explorations.

Hope to see you there!
