___I listened to a great presentation by Bill Reinert of Toyota Motor Company on Peak Oil, GHG’s, alternative Fuel’s, alternative Oil sources, alternative automobile propulsion, let alone infrastructure and other problematic areas of advanced technology as far as the Automobile is concerned.
___EVWorld is a great site for this and the open access article linked is a stunner! Just one example: “Speaking about the recent drop in gasoline prices in America, Reinert commented that light truck and SUV sales have already begun to rebound. He remarked, “What can I say, sheep are meant to be shorn.”
___Listen/View it whenever you find the time. It is worth it!
The Challenge of Building Green Cars.
___Another interesting aspect from this Toyota rep himself. HSD costs just $2,000 OEM in total! Also, expect a 25% improvement in FE with the next gen Prius-III!
