Today the John Edwards campaign announced plans to be “carbon neutral” in an effort of doing their part to reduce global warming. It looks like they are working with NativeEnergy and will be donating to help build clean electricity producing plants that then offset the need for standard “dirty” electric plants.

Jory Squibb built this micro-car that gets 85 mpg in the city and 105 mpg on an economy run. Now who in the world would want to build and even be seen in something like this? I would. This is a one of a kind, and if some folk got together and built 100 of them I am sure they would go together easier and faster and cheaper.
