In The News: Gas, 250mpg, GW New Data

Yet another article appears in the daily about the high cost of gasoline. I wonder if local people are ready to hear the story of the MinusCar Project?

Another "nail in the naysayers' coffin" says Betsy Mason of the Contra Costa Times. Newly corrected data adds evidence that global warming is real. I can't help but think of how much "corrected data" sounds like manipulated data.

And finally, the AP's Tim Malloy reports that an electrical engineer in California has modified his Toyota Prius to get 250mpg. The Lincoln Journal Star gets the link because of its headline, "Car culture revived: Tinkerers getting 250 mpg from hybrids." It seems a bit of a stretch to suggest that car culture was already in need of reviving or that one tinkerer with a big battery will revive it.
