Get on the bus, dammit!

Why the hell aren't school busses running on biodiesel? Remember in elementary school when they would teach you how to recycle and be good to the environment. Well, here's an easy way for those same schools to get it right. It's a no brainer. Here's the stats [via Veggie Van]:
Julia Roberts was on Oprah today promoting her helping biodiesel producer Earth Biofuels promote a program to encourage the use of biodiesel in more than 500,000 diesel school buses nationwide. ''It's very important that we expand our use of clean energy and make a long-term commitment to it. Biodiesel and ethanol are better for the environment and for the air we breathe,'' she said. She will be joining current Earth Biofuels celeb board members country singer Willie Nelson and Oscar winner Morgan Freeman.

Willie has used biodiesel fuels on his tour bus for the last couple years and has become somewhat of a father figure for biofuels in the U.S. Willie even has his own biofuel which combines 20% renewable vegetable-based diesel fuel with 80% traditional diesel, and can be used in almost any diesel engine without modification. The result is a cleaner burning, American-farmed renewable fuel.

"“It'’s important because we are going around the world starting wars over oil, and we don'’t have to do that,"” Willie has said. "“We can grow our own fuel here at home, help our farmers, help our environment, help the truckers . . . help the local communities."
