EPA, DOT say California actions on auto emissions appear to be "unlawful"

EPA, DOT say California actions on auto emissions appear to be The top lawyers at the Environmental Protection Agency and Transportation Department told the California Air Resources Board Friday that the state's actions in connection with a voluntary emissions deal with four automakers "appear to be unlawful and invalid." © Eric Thayer /Reuters Traffic moves slowly on the 405 freeway in Los Angeles, California July 14, 2011. Eric Thayer /Reuters Ford Motor Co, Honda Motor Co, BMW AG and Volkswagen AG in July agreed to adopt revised California vehicle emissions standards in exchange for some flexibilities offered by the state.

Despite hydrogen cars having zero tailpipe emissions , hydrogen production is energy intensive. But even taking into account hydrogen production, Riversimple says running its vehicle has a much smaller carbon footprint than the lowest emitting cars on the market today.

A fairly in-depth consideration of the origin of the hydrogen emission spectrum and the Balmer Series. Other series resulting from the transitions of

Earlier this year, Hyundai launched the Nexo: a hydrogen fuel cell-powered SUV that only emits water and oxygen. Even though the vehicle promises an environmentally friendly transportation option, its adoption is hampered by the lack of proper fuel cell infrastructure. So, how does one advertise a clean vehicle with a pretty severe limitation? Apparently, by getting an Olympic swimmer to run inside a bubble attached to a Nexo's exhaust to emphasize how clean its emission is.

Hyundai España's YouTube page has posted a commercial (spotted by Motor1) showing Olympic swimmer and brand ambassador Mireia Belmonte running on a treadmill inside a sealed bubble. The video clearly shows that a Nexo's exhaust is connected to the structure. While Hyundai stressed that its vehicle only emits water and 99.9 percent filtered oxygen, it still worked with the Spanish National Centre on Hydrogen and a sports medical center to make sure the whole process was safe.

Toyota Mirai: Company revamps its hydrogen fuel cell car

  Toyota Mirai: Company revamps its hydrogen fuel cell car Toyota has revamped its hydrogen-powered vehicle, doubling down on its bet that fuel cells will secure its future.The Japanese company revealed a new version of its hydrogen-powered vehicle on Friday, doubling down on its bet that fuel cells will help secure Toyota's future as the industry comes under enormous pressure to slash carbon emissions.

First of a three-part series. Humans have harnessed hydrogen for a variety of applications, from blasting rockets into space to making common household products like toothpaste. Now, after decades of development, hydrogen is about to find its way into the family car .

Hydrogen Hybrid Conversion Plans show you how to build and install your own Hydrogen Generator system, producing Hydrogen On-Demand, as you need it. This technology has proven to improve gas mileage as much as 150% on both gasoline and diesel engine vehicles.

As Autoblog noted, the video works in tandem with the Hyundai Eco Road Show that's now touring Spain to demo the automaker's eco-friendly vehicles. You can check out the whole video below, though needless to be said, don't try this at home.

Solar energy 'breakthrough' could replace fossil fuels in some industries .
If solar energy is truly going to take over from fossil fuels, it needs to be hot enough for not only generating power, but replacing industrial processes outright -- and even the 1,049F of the best solar concentrator systems wouldn't cut it. Heliogen, however, may have finally cracked that barrier. The Bill Gates-backed startup has successfully concentrated solar energy at "breakthrough" temperatures above 1,832F, making it toasty enough to replace fossil fuels for industrial tasks like producing cement or steel.The trick is the use of computer vision (aka a form of AI) to align a large array of mirrors as they reflect sunlight on a solitary target.
