Electric Cars: Real v. Compliance Cars (video)

You’re probably aware that there are a lot of new electric cars coming out. Thanks to California zero-emissions regulations, which have been adopted by several states in the northeast as well as the northwest, many car manufacturers have incentive to create new zero-emission electric cars. Good right? Well . . . If you listen to this interview, which is the first of our 2-part series with our favorite green car dude, John Voelcker, editor of GreenCarReports.com, you begin to separate the real from the marketing hype.

Here’s Part 1: What is a Compliance Car?

In Part 2, John names names . . . Watch Part 2 HERE!

When all the oil is gone we will
walk or drive the electric car!

It really is that simple.

Wherever you are there once was a forest.
Plant & protect Danny's trees for life.
Trees are the lungs of the earth.

Welcome to the startup of The Phoenix Hydrogen Co-op. My goal is to raise one thousand trillion australian dollars in capital investment. To build the Solar Hydrogen Economy. The Solar hydrogen Economy is build on the energy transformation of sunshine(photons) into electricity in the Australian desert, then we use this solar electricity to split sea water into the elements of oxygen and hydrogen. We can release the oxygen into the atmosphere and store the solar hydrogen gas as fuel.

Solar hydrogen gas has three times the energy content of fossil fuels, when compared on a kilogram per kilogram bases or a pound for pound ratio.

My goal is to employ a fund raiser for each ten million dollars in donations, until we reach a global group of fund raisers of 700,000 for a donation of seven trillion
