The Fuelish New Year Enviro Show

New Year’s Greetings Earthlings, will this one be better than the last? You better hope it will! We’ll be speaking with David Blume author of "Alcohol Can Be A Gas!" about gasohol/ethanol and have a look at other alternative fuels. Also, on the award winning Enviro Show, a New Year’s reflection on post-holiday glut. With that in mind, there’s a "must see" doing the rounds on the Web, checkout The Story of Stuff. If you don’t have access to a computer send $10 for the DVD to Story of Stuff, 1442A Walnut Street #272, Berkeley, CA 94709. Finally, we’ll dish out some "chewy rhetoric" during our Darth Cheney and Enviro Show Echo Chamber segments, but first it’s time for....... Revenge of the Critters! A special New Year extended segment: Hold that Tiger! Tatiana takes out taunter.

On the Enviro Show Echo chamber we climb onboard the media bus with just about everyone whose covered our hometown boys made good: We review some of the Q&A on their website about the wonders of running that ol’ beater on Straight Veggie Oil. On our blog there’s always time for a commercial break! Checkout Joe for Oil if you’re having trouble keeping that furnace going. Nothin’ like choosing between heat and food to keep you on your toes when it's below zero! From the Washington Post via the Globe: Massachusetts sues EPA on Emmissions. Gosh, maybe that belongs in the Darth Cheney segment, after all it’s Big Oil’s EPA.

"When the oil runs dry", by Dave Rovics takes us to our Interview with David Blume. Then it's time for...(groan)...umm, Glen? Is it over yet? How come it’s a new year and these guys in the White House are still with us?? What’s the Bush countdown clock say? It seems the Bush regime rated 11th place in Grist’s Top Green stories of 2007. Was it for the Bush regime's stellar record on the environment? We don’t think so!

Finally, we checkout the Bus Stop Billboard:

Love the blog. I know Justin, greasecar inventor, from when we had studios in the same building in Florence. I have never been able to afford to convert my car but I *do* run biodiesel as it is readily available in Holyoke. I added you to my blogroll at My blog is not about my radio show but is sort of an extension of its freestyling and random format. Best wishes for an impactful year of the rat.
