People want to believe that the alternatives to gasoline will protect the environment, and yes most are guliable to belive they actually do.
However the current crop of "environmentally friendly" vehicles are a step in the right direction even if all they actually do is highlight the problem.
As long as we keep moving forward we will eventually come up with a solution that really is better than the old way.
Fuel Cells anyone?

The commercial is stupid.  If ya' gotta go, ya' is going to go.  Doesn't matter how--you are still pushing heat into the environment which is good because it will speed up the earth if we all go West from East and it will counter act global warming because the days will shorter.  HB of CJ (old coot) Smiley Smiley Smiley

 Jeremy. CO2 is in our atmosphere, always has been. Its naturally occurring. In fact, with every breath you exhale, you exhale a large quantity of CO2. Companies that sell liquefied gases such as liquefied CO2, take the gas right out of the air, compress it into liquid states and store it in tanks. Some gases like Acetylene are manufactured, but CO2, O2, Nitrogen, Argon, Neon, etc., are pulled right out of the ambient air.

Gosh, give that man a Nobel prize. All this worrying about global warming caused by excess CO2 in the atmosphere! How silly! It's apparently just a matter of "taking the gas right out of the air"!

Seriously, you're wasted on bus forums.

A shameless plug for my business - visit www.magazineexchange.co.uk for back issue magazines - thousands of titles covering cars, motorbikes, aircraft, railways, boats, modelling etc. You'll find lots of interest, although not much covering American buses sadly.

For those seriously considering such a setup I have the deal of the century: a parcel of land, real cheap, where you can park your bus with a great view. Can be visited during low tide times only. Cash only.

Even with the many times removed that the original energy burned at a power plant to create electricity, a large coal or natural gas generating power plant operates at the highest efficiency and lowest pollution possible (that's how they make the most money).  It is impossible for a small car engine (like 200hp) to even come close to a large power plants continuous high efficiency. So taking coal/natural gas, firing it off in a boiler, creating steam, turning a turbine that turns a generator, running the electricity 100's of miles, knocking the electricity down to usable voltage, plugging the car into the wall socket, having the electricity go through an converter to charge batteries, then powering an electric motor is still more efficient, and more then that, less polluting then individual engines in each car.  Good Luck, TomC

Well, I really do not know if this is a scam or not.  I am certainly willing to listen to see if it makes sense.  I would be very interested in seeing some of the specs like to what psi the air is compressed.  It seems that it would have to be quite high given that the tank space is limited.  Anyway, although skeptical, I don't mind listening.

(snip) Every time I see a Toyota Priapus I think about the power of marketing over common sense.   How much longer can this idiocy continue?

John

The correct answer is.......indefinitely.   Just look at history. If there is one thing we have learned from history, it is this...that we have learned nothing from history.
