David Blume: Alcohol can be a Gas

The real deal on ethanol from permaculturist David Blume (Santa Cruz, CA). His information really opened my eyes and clarified a lot of disinfo about biofuels. Ethanol can be grown from crops in the desert and sea (not places where we grow food). David has given me much hope for the future and proposed some good business ideas, such as local fuel co-ops. I bought his book and dvd!

Short interview can be found here, look for the video link.

Bill Mollison: Permaculture

1989 Documentary about the Bill Mollison and his development of permaculture and food forests. Bill is entertaining and inspiring! I like how nature is being used as the technology that we rely on. By understanding how nature works, we can play god and design our own systems! If we are patient we can create abundance with very little effort! Plant the water, plant the seeds and watch it grow!

If this excites you, watch the global gardener series with Bill Mollison where he travels the world and shows permaculture examples in all regions of the world.

Here is the series on Dryland Systems.

Here is the series on Tropics.

Here are the series on Urban and Temperate locations.

Also, a great written interview with Bill can be found here.
