Illinois policeman makes his own biodiesel, wants to change the world

This little four-paragraph article from WQAD (and the Associated Press) gives me a warm feeling. The actual story – an average American gets fed up with high gas prices and invests a little bit of time and money into figuring out how to brew his own biodiesel, then becomes a strong proponent of biodiesel as a fuel for that can drive change and then started a biodiesel promotion group – isn't unusual or all the exciting. Still, to me this tale exemplifies the type of changes that are taking place across the country. The man, Illinois police officer Dayton Keyes started the Central Illinois Biodiesel Initiative, which is working to get a large-scale biodiesel production plant built in central Illinois.
