(NYT26) SEATTLE -- Dec. 29, 2005 -- WILLIE-NELSON-FUEL -- Willie Nelson and Neil Young at Farm Aid talking about biodiesel fuel at the White River Ampitheater in Seattle in September 2004. While Bono tries to change the world by hobnobbing with politicians and Sir Bob Geldof hosts his mega-benefit concerts, Nelson has birthed his own brand of alternative fuel. It is called, fittingly enough, BioWillie. BioWillie is a type of biodiesel, a fuel that can be made from any number of crops and run in a normal diesel engine. And in BioWillie, Nelson, 72, has blended two of his biggest concerns -- his love of family farmers and disdain for the Iraq war. (Paul Natkin/Farm Aid/The New York Times)
