RMI says clean cars are really "reinventing fire" [w/video]
The videos are part of RMI's "Reinventing Fire" project, which aims to replace noisy combustion with "the whisper of emission-free electric propulsion." After all, RMI notes, the U.S. burns through 13 million barrels of oil each day, oil that contains "energy stored up by millions of years of photosynthesis." In other words, we're using it at a much faster clip than it was created, and that's a recipe for unsustainability. Aside from the environmental benefits, RMI says, "Instead of paying an increasingly high cost for oil in money, environmental damage and blood, we capture a $3.8 trillion net prize by 2050 by not using it."
