AMAZON WATCH » Benefit Concert with Amazon Watch and the SBA: via @AmazonWatch
The Sustainable Biodiesel Alliance is teaming up with Amazon Watch for a "first of its kind" fundraiser event at the beautiful Bently Reserve building in downtown San Francisco to raise money for the work of both groups. In the past biofuels, including biodiesel, have been connected to deforestation and rainforest endangerment through massive scale palm oil and soy production. The purpose of this event is to raise awareness of the impacts of unsustainable oil, gas drilling and hydro development in the Amazon and promote indigenous rights and energy alternatives such as solar, wind and local and community-based biodiesel.
