Lecture 9: Biofuels run buses on old cooking oil - Stagecoach - I
httpwww.globalchange.com Innovation using old cooking oil to drive buses or cars or lorries. Future of public transport energy efficiency and Stagecoach innovation in energy saving, reducing carbon footprint. Why biofuel industry using food is dead -- converting food into oil is stupid and immoral but converting used cooking oil is a good thing. Biodiesel, biomass, biowaste and sugar to fuel conversion. Ethanol and gasoline or petrol mix, European Union EU poliy changes on biofuel and biowaste. Policy reversal. Anti-biofuel capaigns. Food riots, hunger, food shortages, rising food prices, whet prices, food hoarding and stockpiles. Speculation in food futures. Link oil price to food price. Starvation, Africa Asia, India, China. Competition for food -- poor people cannot eat, food prices rise, burning wheat in car engines, driving vehicles, adding ethanol to petrol gasoline. Biodiesel, soybean price rises, rise price rises, food riots, destruction of forests for agriculture. Other reasons for rising food prices drought, crop failure, hoarding, ban on food exports, stockpiling of food, speculation on food commodities markets. Ethics of biomass fuel generation and increased use of fertilisers. Net consumption or saving of CO2 energy. Global trade in food, oil and energy. Ethical crisis in biofuels. Federal government policy and national energy policy. EU fuel regulations for ethanol, biodiesel and biomass fuel generation. Economy, global warming, energy conservation and real estate industry. Environment, environmental change, climate change. Risks in real estate development. Operational and management risks and role of a Futurist. What is a Futurist? Market research limitations and customer expectations, client demands. Business management video comment about successful Stagecoach innovation by Dr Patrick Dixon, conference keynote speaker lecture, author of Futurewise and Building a Better Business.
