"So deceived he Sweden before he disappeared."
"It was very lonely in the beginning. Yes, it was alone a very long time. Everyone around believed that ethanol as automotive fuel was god's gift to humanity."
"I tried to show the weaknesses. But it was a religion I gave me, and religion is difficult to discuss with facts."
"According to the Centre party chairman Maud Olofsson, it would not be long until Europe and the world would connect themselves to the ethanol-worshippers."
"it had her childhood friend, the car dealer Per Carstedt cheated on her, and the thesis, she ran stubbornly for many years in parliament, and later in the government as minister of economic affairs."
"Per Carstedt is a skilled speaker, yes, in the class with the best american frikyrkopredikanterna. It is easy to get carried away."
"Carstedt imported etanolkonverterade Ford Taurus from the united states in the mid-1980s. The cars quickly gained the Swedish society for nature conservation's review ”Good environmental choice”."
"But the decals went of after biltidningen Technology World tests showed an uncharacteristic bränsletörst, ethanol or not. But Per Carstedt preached on and soon he took home etanolkonverterade Ford Focus, which was not quite as thirsty."
"Saab, the ailing, even then, saw his chance and budgetkonverterade all its petrol engines to the new divine E85."
"the green Party pushed through the so-called pumplagen which forced filling stations in Sweden to dig down a new tank solely for E85, such a high cost that many filling stations in remote areas could not afford and were forced to beat again."
"Cheated on an ethanol-factory"
"Per Carstedt, with its Fordhandel in Örnsköldsvik preached on, became ethanol-jesus in the vernacular, and deceived the municipalities along the northern coast to wager hundreds of (tax-)million to build an ethanol plant. It would produce ethanol from forest waste, as that does not become pulp or sawlogs called. Branches, tops, stumps and roots."
"There were not many people talked about that skogsavfallet was already a hotly sought-after commodity, not least in order to produce wood chips for combustion in thermal power plants and home furnaces, with significantly better energy efficiency than first burning the raw material to alcohol."
"Still very much alone I argued in debates with Per Carstedt to his ”second generation ethanol” was still just a laboratorieprodukt far from the large-scale production."
"where we discussed about ten years ago, and Carstedts process has still not left the lab environment."
"In the north of sweden produced a couple of liters at a time, in the parts of their ethanol plant in Norrköping is burned a little more, but still, the production is far from profitable."
"Now turned Per Carstedt their attention towards Africa. Where would Norrlandskommunerna bet new skattemiljarder to buy up the land and cultivate sugar cane."
"Still very much alone, I criticised his plans."
"the Followers (the other in the debate) claimed that the venture would provide jobs for the poor africans; money,employment, schools, success, prosperity. At the same time that we would save the environment with our solution."
"the car owners were the guinea pigs."
"Bluff, I argued. And it was there with the jobs are not a bit too naive? At the same time, and as lonely as usual, I argued that ethanol cars developed far too fast and that the buyers, the car owners, were the guinea pigs and the risk of paying dearly for politicians to religious superstition."
"Carstedts farming as well have not come in time, but now has a different skojarpredikant appeared, a swiss with the company Addax. In december of last year decided the state Swedfund to invest 100 million euros in one of the company's ethanol projects in Sierra Leone. Swedfund used Side-money to go into it hear divine project."
"Lantmännen (you remember well Lantmännen, with in Per Carstedts sect and with its own ethanol factory in Norrköping) wrote fond of the bet which would bring prosperity to the poor, hungry africans."
"And the Green motorists deny not, the spokesman Mattias Goldman defends both Carstedts and Addax-Africa project. As usual."
"Now Carstedts church collapsed. Ethanol-jesus himself is on the run, no one has been in contact with him for several months. Those who were tricked into buying ethanol cars use petrol, they have almost always done, but now the thoughts of the petrol even though it costs more, for the motors slaggar again if the fuel is called E85. With dull bärgningar to the workshop as a result."
"Now has the green Party abandoned the ethanol. ”Ethanol production raises the price of food in poor countries”. Late shall the sinner awaken."
"And in Sierra Leone complain of the population that they have been to rent out their land to the big european etanoltillverkaren for a pittance. Schools, vattenbrunnarna and the jobs they have not seen the smoke of."
