Thanks for visiting AutoblogGreen on our opening day, which happens to be the 36th anniversary of the very first Earth Day. Twenty million Americans came together on this day back in 1970 to celebrate the possibility of a healthier planet, and while we, the citizens of Earth, still have a long way to go, we've traveled a great distance in 36 years.

The automotive industry and car culture in general has arguably played one of the largest parts in this planet's environmental decline. Whether you're a conflicted auto enthusiast or someone who begrudgingly accepts the automobile's role in your eco-friendly life, you'll find AutoblogGreen offers you an up-to-the-minute account of the auto industry's efforts to clean up its act.

Hybrids, diesels and vehicles running on ethanol, compressed natural gas and vegetable oil are all on our radar, as well as the promise of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles emitting nothing but that elixer of life - water. What's more, we'll cover the green car culture that has blossomed around the world's ever growing fleet of green vehicles.

So sit down, buckle up and get ready to accelerate gently and maximize your mileage with AutoblogGreen.

      Good luck to everybody involved. With all the talk about regenartive fuels lately, I'm sure you're on to something big.

      Jesse - that Lenin birthday rhetoric is old and tired. Welfare state? Add up the handouts for oil and auto industry, from troops to defend oil reserves to ever expanding freeway systems. Real entrepreneurs are working "CleanTech" projects to make cars that are more efficient, more comfortable and safer, not working out how to flog tarted up trucks as cars.

      I prefer to "celebrate" Vladimir Lenin's birthday instead of Earth Day. Same day (April 22nd), and ultimately, the same agenda.

      Congradulations on your launch. I only discovered AutoBlog.com a couple of weeks ago, and now to see the 'Green' debut, all I can do is give it an AutoWebsiteGuy Double Thumbs Up! ^^
