Hydrogen? - Battery?- BioFuel? No, Air Taxi

France: Your taxi in Paris is likely to run on compressed air. Sometimes the French seem more frugal than us Scots.

Barring any last-minute design changes on the way to production, the Air Car should be surprisingly practical. The $12,700 CityCAT, one of a handful of planned Air Car models, can hit 68 mph and has a range of 125 miles. It will take only a few minutes for the CityCAT to refuel at gas stations equipped with custom air compressor units; MDI says it should cost around $2 to fill the car’s carbon-fiber tanks with 340 liters of air at 4350 psi. Drivers also will be able to plug into the electrical grid and use the car’s built-in compressor to refill the tanks in about 4 hours.

So, French ingenuity allows us to bomb around town all day, [usually less than 125 miles], and there is no suckling at the breasts of Chevron or ExxonMobile. Hey, I like that! A sort of real freedom, at last! = TG

Compressed air? Cool! I don't like those tiny wheels, but I guess I'd better get used to them. This is going to be the wave of the future and we've got to get away from being oil dependent, especially foreign oil dependent.

It looks like the French finally may be recovering from all that stuff the Aliens dumped on them in 42! ;)
Hi. My name is Eugene Gershin. I'd like to welcome you to Obadiah Shoher's blog, Samson Blinded: A Machiavellian Perspective on the Middle East Conflict.

Obadiah is a pen name of a politician. He writes extremely controversial articles about Israel, the Middle East politics, and terrorism.

Obadiah advocates political rationalism instead of moralizing. He is economic liberal and political conservative.

Nevertheless, Obadiah’s is the largest Jewish personal blog, read by more than 100,000 people monthly. 210,000 people from 81 countries downloaded Obadiah’s book. The blog was voted the best overall in People’s Choice: Jewish and Israeli blogs Awards, received Webby Honoree and other awards.

I will allow the *unrelated* but interesting *tip* from Eugene to stand as it is topical in the political sense.=TG
