Malaysia Govt. Pushes Biodiesel

This report, originally by the left-wing Associated Press, comes from the South African newspaper Business Report, and dated November 16th.

Malaysia, the world's largest producer of palm oil, will require government-owned vehicles to use biodiesel by next year. The government wants to convince Malaysians to use biodiesel, so as to save money on fuel and cut back on government fuel subsidies. Eventually, the national biodiesel mix will be 80% diesel fuel and 20% palm oil.

Distributism has always believed in cleaning the environment without advancing the power of big government or big business. With this Islamic state importing most of it's diesel fuel, this will help to cut it's dependence on it while helping to improve it's air quality. This is a good example to follow. Congratulations to the Malaysians!
