Don't put your green garb from St. Patrick's Day away just yet-- did you know that March 18 is known as National Biodisel Day? That means there's reason for a bit more green celebrations.

This site offers a good overview of what National Biodiesel Day is and how people like to 'celebrate,' but I thought it also a great opportunity collect some of the more notable posts on biodiesel, biomass, biofuels etc.  from the Energy Central Community over the past 6 months or so. These takes range from supportive to skeptical, but there's one thing you can be sure of: the Energy Central Community will bring you content straight from industry experts and thought leaders who will get these National Biodiesel Day discussions going. 

Read some of the headlines that follow, and leave a note in the comments what your takeaway is after spending a few minutes recognizing the 'holiday' by thinking about where biodiesel fits into our energy systems.

The idea of putting our food supply (corn) into cars and trucks is pretty dopey. Then consider the fact that CO2 emissions increase because your miles per gallon decrease about 10% and that increases CO2 emissions by about the same amount. Whole scheme is really, really dopey.
