By Anonymous Monash University has demonstrated that Goretex can replace platinum in fuel cells, potentially revolutionising pollution-free transport. The announcement comes as a geochemist warns that global reserves of platinum are inadequate to support the mass production of hydrogen fuel cell cars. Hydrogen fuel cells offer the theoretical possibility of eliminating tailpipe pollution. Provided the hydrogen is produced using clean energy sources, cars driven by hydrogen fuel cells would...

By Richard Hammond THE performance of electric cars has been dismal. They really are little more than milk floats. But more pressing is why they have sprung into existence in the first place - the emissions. Not from the car but the means by which the electricity is produced. It has got to come from somewhere - and at the moment it comes from huge power stations which burn fossil fuels. Rather than burning petrol in cars one by one, you are burning it in a massive central power...

By Lawrence T. Beckerle It's a little amusing to listen to West Virginia politicians and editors speak out against the federal subsidies to produce more biofuels. More than that, it's sad because it's a sure sign that they don't understand what is going on. The move toward biofuels is by stringent pollution-control standards. For a few years, automakers were able to postpone ever more stringent standards by showing the pollution-control equipment wouldn't work with the sulfur levels that...
