Default 'The Diesel' Is Going Green

Quote:
Throughout his storied pro basketball career, Shaquille O'Neal has referred to himself by so many nicknames he can hardly keep track of them all. Some of his favorites are "Superman," "The Diesel," "Shaq Fu," "The Big Elvis" and "The Big Aristotle." Now he's adding one more to the list.

"The Big Ethanol," he joked after witnessing the new MicroFueler in action last Thursday in Pacific Palisades. "I heard about this through a friend of a friend and the more I found out about it, the more I knew I wanted to get involved and learn how it works. I asked 'If we can take waste and do something good with it--show me!' And they did."

Yes, O'Neal has officially gone green as one of the first investors in the revolutionary in-home micro-refinery system that turns organic waste into a high-performance ethanol fuel for cars. O'Neal was unable to attend the initial public introduction July 30 but wanted to appear in person for the "encore" at Chris Ursitti's house in the Alphabet streets.

Ursitti is the CEO of GreenHouse, the San Diego-based energy company serving as exclusive distributor of the MicroFueler in California and Arizona. GreenHouse plans to begin commercial distribution in late October.

"This isn't about me, it's about this baby right here," O'Neal said, playfully tapping the refrigerator-sized MicroFueler unit as he pumped ethanol into a truck parked in the driveway. "Now I'm part of yet another winning team. I'm getting one of these installed at my house, too."

LOL, yeah really. I guess this:





...Wasn't the tipping point for rapsdabest. No, it was Shaq publicizing how he's environmentally conscious.

Oh wait, this is fun! Shaq at da club:

But it's kind of selling out at a time when everyone's worried about global warming. At least he'll be able to conserve Lebron's energy.
