Solar Powered Cars Anyone?

Renewable energy cars are totally possible!  Our only challenges are the people profiting from the dirty energy of oil who do not want these new technologies to replace our gas engine cars and our collective beliefs that we are helpless to these people.  Deep in my heart, however, I do not believe that to be true.  We can find peaceful, creative ways to overcome that challenge.  I will be writing a blog post on that topic shortly.

So, without further ado, check out this inspiring article about a Nigerian student who converted a Volkswagen Beetle into a wind and solar-powered car:

Also, I would LOVE to hear your thoughts on this article and on renewable energy cars in general.  Perhaps, you know something I don’t or have a unique perspective.  Do share, brilliant one!
