Storyline

The film tells the story of biodiesel, an alternative fuel for diesel engines. Made from vegetable oil, it is non-toxic, has low carbon dioxide emissions and can ultimately replace all liquid fuels used in the United States, thus freeing America's dependence on oil needed for gasoline.

we might have a chance with several different (smart ) fixes to oil
15 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We have a chance of turning the imported oil fiasco around with algae and marginal land oil seed products to get us back to our roots of being ahead of the world in smart solutions that make sense environmentally and economically we are the agriculture powerhouse if we get to work on alternative means like wind solar non corn based fuel that will work in diesels(originally designed to run on peanut oil a biofuel) when run on petroleum are the largest polluters (in trucks ships trains tractors) and can operate on camelina oil diesel like Montana is growing (68,000 acres) yielding 120 gallons per acre (irrigation fertilizer herbicides pesticides not required) on semi arid unproductive land and have had with no problems for 5 years get with it America there is a chance
