it had to happen sometime…

In the midst of all of this hoo-ha about biofuels and electric cars, there is an eye-opening, yet strangely not surprising article at The BBC about a man who had invented a concept car that runs on compressed air, the Aircar! Well, why not, I would think. Of course, for long voyages it requires some fuel (at about 120 miles per gallon), but for tooting about town, nothing but air. It seems like a perfectly reasonable idea though, but is it one that would fly here, if it was given the chance? Maybe we’ll get to find out!

Of course, the plan is for it to be made by Tata Motors and available only in India, but maybe it will succeed and spread. It seems certainly like a step in the right direction. Plus, it will be even more fuel efficient the “the worlds cheapest car”, the 50mpg(?), $2,500 Nano, also available in India from Tata motors.

They might even be safe enough and roadworthy on our streets, if some people would stop driving those driving those giant Hot Wheels cars around that make the roads more dangerous for everyone.
