Biodiesel America illuminates biodiesel's role in alleviating energy woes

By | April 01, 2006
Energy expert and author Josh Tickell details how America can break its dependence on Middle East oil in Biodiesel America, a new book launched during the National Biodiesel Conference & Expo. Tickell shows how biodiesel could bring over 1 million jobs back to rural America, invigorate our economy and create a stable domestic fuel supply, while leaving our lifestyle and food supply untouched.

"Biodiesel America is an engaging look at an issue that is front and center in our country-energy supply," said Joe Jobe, CEO of the National Biodiesel Board. "This is an extremely well-researched, thought-provoking book that documents the past, present and future of the bourgeoning biodiesel industry."

In simple language, Tickell explains issues such as why America is more dependent on oil than any other nation; why Saudi Arabia's oil empire will soon crumble, sending energy prices skyrocketing; and why everyday vehicles that get 80 miles per gallon are already sold in Europe, but not in the United States.

Tickell also authored the book From the Fryer to the Fuel Tank: The Complete Guide to Using Vegetable Oil as an Alternative Fuel, of which he sold more than 50,000 copies. His tour around the country in the "Veggie Van" helped jumpstart biodiesel education in America in the early 1990s.
