I just saw yesterday early morning the third episode in the 4-part FutureCar series on Discovery Channel.
Wow. I'm really excited about the developments in this field in the automotive industry (and in power generation in general).
Ethanol, biodiesel, solar, water, hydrogen, pure electricity, even air! All of you should see that. Although I've read on autobloggreen.com that there were a lot of inaccuracies in the show, it's still thought-provoking and should start discussion and more action and support towards environment-friendly -- and cheaper -- technologies. Here in the Philippines, I'm not sure how "good" we will be in adopting those technologies. At the moment, I reckon even the term "hybrid car" is alien to car enthusiasts here. And I'm not a car enthusiast, just a techie. (Though if I'm having a car, I'd prefer one that doesn't run on fossil fuel. At the moment I'm eyeing the hybrid Toyota Prius =')
It's a great leap towards a clean environment. Maybe even a step towards a future where money doesn't hold the value it does now. I mean, air and solar power is free. When we don't pay for our car fuels anymore, what else would we not be paying for in the future?
