June 2005: Pittsburgh's largest Critical Mass ever!
Plant Fueled: Grassroots Biofuel in Pittsburgh.
As petroleum costs rise, biofuels are becoming increasingly popular as asource of power, especially for automobiles.  And while industry is moving to exploit biofuels as another source of profit, an alternative grassroots movement is growing in Pittsburgh to utilize biofuel for more than just making money.  They see in biofuels an opportunity to strengthen communities, and help fix some problems in the city.

Rob Cullen and John Landis of Rustbelt TV took a look at the localgrassroots biofuel movement.  Their new video is called Plant Fueled:Grassroots Biofuel in Pittsburgh.
