Future Car

I watched "Car of the Future" from NOVA with Click and Clack.

Interesting facts:
  • Less than 1% of the gas is used to move the driver.
  • The 800 million cars in the world would circle the globe 100 times.
  • Cars are larger and heavier which cancels increased fuel efficiency.
Moral of the movie? It will take a long time to improve cars.
Good thing we have bikes.
