Neil Young Goes Green

Published: 2004-03-04
Legendary Canadian rocker Neil Young may be a tree hugger to some, but he practices what he preaches too. Young is currently touring with his show "Greendale" which is based on Young's latest release by the same name. One of the characters in the show is an environmentalist just like Young. The Greendale tour requires a number of buses and trucks to transport all of the people and equipment. Young uses an environmentally friendly fuel called bio-diesel. The bio-diesel is made from renewable sources like soybean oil and recycled cooking oil. Neil Young has been involved with the Farm Aid project for 18 years and is always searching for way to help out the farmer. According to Young there are millions of acres in unused farmland in Canada and in the US that could be used to generate environmentally friendly fuels like the bio-diesel. Young also admits that convincing people to change in a pro oil world will be difficult.
