    Top 5 Green Transportation Trends of 2010 - For green transportation, 2010 marked the real and true beginning of fundamental changes in the way people get around. Here are five stories about new ground broken in green transportation, including 1) re-arrival of electric car; 2) racing going green; 4) 40 mpg becoming the norm; 5) shipping getting cleaner.(Gas 2.0; December 31, 2010)

    Jet Stream™ Electric Supercharger - This ebook shows how, for less than $100 USD, and with minimal mechanical skill, you can build and install this Supercharger, capable of up to 24,500 rpm; which will deliver a 5-30% boost in horsepower throughout the entire RPM band, "guaranteed," while also improving mileage 10% or more on most any vehicle. (eSuperchargers; [Dec. 27, 2010])
  • Fuel Efficiency >
    High-speed trains pollute 29 percent less than traditional trains - The AVE consumes less due to the intrinsic features of the high speed system, such as its more standardised speed profile and the lower number of stops and curves during the journey. The consumption of auxiliary services (air conditioning, lighting and ventilation) is also reduced in direct proportion to speed. (PhysOrg; December 14, 2010)
  • Newsletters >
    Panacea Newsletter 11 (pdf) - Ashtweth Palise has posted his most recent 31-page newsletter, addressing a wide range of issues, including what he considers to be three presently-available free energy devices, and his recent test results from e-Orbo, and his results from testing the Gadgetman Groove. He also comments regarding political threats to freedom. (Panacea-Bocaf; December 3, 2010)

    Gadgetman Groove Augments HHO - I asked Ron Hatton: "Have you tested to see how the Gadgetman Groove effect HHO systems? Improve? Additive? Redundant?" He replied: "It will further enhance the fuel-hydrogen-oxygen mix. In a 2000 Land Rover Discovery, it got 35% on 2 LPM HHO. When the groove was added, it increases to a 50% gain."
