The Truth About Alcohol Fuel: Our Path Beyond Petroleum,
with David Blume
Tuesday, July 13, 2010, 5:30 pm
Tucson Public Library, 101 N. Stone Ave. Lower Level Meeting Room:
Co-Sponsored by the Community Information Resource Center and Sustainable Tucson
Permaculturist David Blume will present the history of alcohol fuel, and outline how localized, small-scale alcohol fuel production can contribute to economic vitality and regional energy and food security.
As oil fouls some of the most precious and productive ecosystems in the US, polls show that Americans are ready for a radical shift away from dependence on oil. Recently President Obama stated from the Oval Office:
The tragedy unfolding on our coast is the most painful and powerful reminder yet that the time to embrace a clean energy future is now. Now is the moment for this generation to embark on a national mission to unleash American innovation and seize control of our own destiny.
There IS an alternative to oil that we can embrace NOW! You are invited to spend an evening with David Blume as he discusses appropriate scale alcohol fuel production – a way forward that creates plentiful green jobs and supports our economy, while improving our environment. And best of all, alcohol fuel can be used in our current autos and trucks to make any car an eco-car!
• David will discuss how the proud history of alcohol fuel (the original auto fuel) has been conveniently left out of the official history of energy in America; and how Big Oil’s billion dollar “Food vs Fuel” PR campaign buried the best alternative to oil under an avalanche of misinformation and propaganda (until now).
• David will introduce you to a new paradigm of permaculture-based food AND fuel production, and discuss how to unleash an economic and energy renaissance in Tucson, in the Southwest, and beyond.
A biofuel pioneer for over 30 years, David Blume is the author of Alcohol Can Be A Gas, Executive Director of the International Institute of Ecological Agriculture, Permaculturist, and most recently, founder of Blume Distillation, LLC. David has devoted his career to exploring how to create abundant food and biofuels, sustainably helping navigate the challenge of our time: the end of the age of cheap, plentiful oil.
There is no charge to attend this event.
