DailyDirt: Greener Cars

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

The debates over the best energy technologies will likely exist for a long time to come — perhaps to the detriment of making actual progress in replacing fossil fuels with renewable or cleaner energy sources. The transportation sector makes a pretty big dent in total energy usage, so it’s always nice to see cars getting more efficient and greener. Here are a few quick links on some efforts to improve personal transportation (but that may not really be that green in the big picture).

By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

Greener is greater... for the environment

These companies are classic nerds, they tunnel into the one area they believe will save their business and stop innovating in other areas.

There’s no question creating more efficient transportation is good for the environment but it is rare that this sells cars.

A car being more efficient doesn’t feel very much like a new feature when I get in and test drive. So make my car greener, thats great for the environment, but if you want to increase your business, you need to add features.

I’ve been complaining for far too long that my car doesn’t have a usable computer in it that can wirelessly sync to my wifi and download music and movies, maps and directions while parked in my driveway. Some new cars are adding mounted ipads in the dash, which is a step in the right direction. I think the best thing for us all would be if Google would partner up with a car company.

Talking about cranking things I just saw this.
The Wave Disk Generator that promises to combust any type of fuel and increase the output 3.5x and have fewer parts then a conventional combustion motor.

Some people already realized that there is no one solution that can handle the future, people are starting to realize they will need all of the solutions available, the future will be a mix of all we have right now and some new things to come to get out of fossil fuels dependency.
