Greasy Rider is a 2006 environmental and technological documentary narrated by Noam Chomsky, Yoko Ono, Morgan Freeman and Tommy Chong. The film tells the story of the greasecar movement, a grass-roots "green" fuel initiative whose supporters use a biodegradable, edible, non-toxic fuel called biodiesel to power their vehicles. Biodiesel can be produced cheaply using waste grease and oils from the restaurant industry. Greasy Rider explains the development of biodiesel and several other similar fuels, and demonstrates the minor modifications necessary to make an ordinary diesel vehicle run on these revolutionary new fuels. The creators of this film, Joey Carey and JJ Beck, drive their greasecars across the Great Plains to attend a convention with hundreds of other biodiesel users. As oil and gasoline prices continue to rise, biodiesel is an increasingly attractive option for many Americans - and as Carey and Beck are happy to point out, it also produces exhaust that smells like buttery popcorn!
