Courtesy of the Moreton Regional Library, we've just finished watching a DVD called PUMP. Subtitle: Unlock the secret that's been here all along.
The nub is that alcohol-based fuels have been available since the days of Henry Ford himself. They are still available and far from using land which 'should' grow food, distilling crops into ethanol or methanol gives fuels AND food for animals.
Other part of the equation is the underhand way oil companies have stopped people (in America anyway) from having fuel CHOICE. It's very possible this behaviour is alive and well and dictating to us in Australia. Nothing would surprise me after seeing this film.
Persevere with this film - the intro is a tad over-long and there is some padding at the end. But the extended middle part contains a wealth of (to me) unknown information. All of which is not only interesting but horrifying that the world should have been deprived of this information and its practical application for over 100 years. Blackmail by stealth.
I'm still coming to terms with the absolute arrogance and naked greed of the oil companies.
A highly recommended film. Hire it from your Library or buy it.
Details: PUMP, accentfilm.com, 85mins. Be prepared for an overlong trailer segment before the film starts. Stick with it, it's well worth it.
I'm having some problems with pics not loading on BLF including the one you have added above Elaine. Not sure if it's just my problem or if everyone is experiencing the same thing.
Pics in my blogs have disappeared also. Hopefully they will reappear as if by magic!
No - the box is empty for me. Something weird going on at my end but I am at a loss to know what.
