Running on Air

A friend of mine sent me an article about the new Compressed Air Vehicle.

Essentially, the difference is that instead of burning petrol to drive the engine, it uses compressed air to do the same thing. So, provided that the energy comes from a non-greenhouse source, the car could be carbon free.

Of course, the same thing could also be done with electric cars or hydrogen cars. It would just take companies and/or government to have the foresight to get behind one of these strategies. Not only would this enable cars to be greenhouse-free, but it would mean that the energy could be obtained through Australian renewable energy, rather than imported fuel.
