Electric Vehicle Conversion

Zero Carbon House

Environmental Policy & Tax Break Information

Interesting and informative links separate from the projects above:

General

Makezine Blog

OK, I'm cheating on the first one. This isn't a link to a specific article, but it has a lot of do-it-yourself projects, some of which are environment related. Make: Magazine is a magazine where they show you how to make stuff (duh). In the magazine they have shown how to make windmills, electric conversions and other things. The cool thing about Make is that they have a blog, where they post a lot more projects than they can fit in the magazine. That's what this link is.

Convert Your Car to Run on Water

This website offers some FAQ's about the validity of using water in place of gasoline to power automobiles as well as some basic plans for the conversion process. The information on this site iis in the same realm as the technology our guest Stefan was talking about in our meeting on September 17, 2007. Very interesting possibility if anyone has an old car they have no real use for.

Six Strokes of Genius - Popular Science

Another example of using existing (or old) technology in new ways. This guy injects some water into an internal combustion engine at the end of the 4th stroke and gains two more strokes from the steam turbine action. From May 2007.
