Car that runs on nothing but water unveiled in Japan. No gasoline, no battery recharging and no emissions.

Japanese company Genepax presents its eco-friendly car that runs on nothing but water. The car has an energy generator that extracts hydrogen from water that is poured into the car’s tank. The generator then releases electrons that produce electric power to run the car. The electric powered car can run on any type of water (you can even use tea and soda…etc). The car can run for an hour at about 50 miles per hour on just a liter of water; about 2 cans of soda worth. Genepax, the company that invented the technology, aims to collaborate with Japanese manufacturers to mass produce it.

The Dangers of BBQ

Yes, barbeque lovers - there is a danger associated with barbequed meats. Barbequed meats play a role in causing cancer. The dangers lie in the way the processed slaughtered animal's flesh cooks over the flame. Basically, when juices cook in meat (dead animal flesh), "Hetero-cyclic Amines" (HA's) form.

Positive Affirmation

Everyone loves a happy positive person. We wanted to send out positive vibrations when we can. A daily reminder to love, care and share. As we bring that love and compassion in our hearts and we share that joy with everything and everyone around us.

First Algae-Powered Car Attempts to Cross US on 25 Gallons

San Francisco saw the unveiling of the world’s first algae fuel-powered vehicle, dubbed the Algaeus. The plug-in hybrid car, which is a Prius tricked out with a nickel metal hydride battery and a plug, runs on green crude from Sapphire Energy — no modifications to the gasoline engine necessary. The set-up is so effective, according to FUEL producer Rebecca Harrell, that the Algaeus can run on approximately 25 gallons from coast to coast!

California Clean Car Discount Act

The nation's first "feebate" law. One-time registration fees of up to $2,500 would be levied on new gas guzzlers, such as Hummers, Dodge Vipers and Chevy Tahoes. Some cleaner sport utility vehicles, pickups and minivans would be exempt from any charge, while the Toyota Prius, Honda Civic, Nissan Sentra and other fuel-efficient cars would get hefty rebates.

The bill, AB 493, is among a raft of measures under consideration in the Legislature and, behind the scenes, by officials at California's powerful Air Resources Board, to press the auto industry to do its part to fight global warming.

"We put 1.8 million vehicles a year on the road in California," said Assemblyman Ira Ruskin (D-Redwood City), the bill's author. "We have to find ways to get more clean cars on the road and more dirty cars off. There's no time to waste if we're to avoid the catastrophes ahead from global warming.

Understanding Your Impacts!

Every day we are using resources and producing waste. We put a great deal of strain on the earth, so it's important for all of us to understand our impacts and learn what we can do to lessen them.

The average American household consumes over 100,000 gallons of water and generates over 22 tons of carbon dioxide each year.

The United States is responsible for 21% of carbon dioxide emissions, yet we have less than 5% of the world's population. We can and must reduce our environmental impact and slow global warming if we hope to have a promising future.
