Green Vehicle, Back To Nature

Updated on October 9, 2009

"Global Warming" become international issue. And many country leaders all over the world agreed saying that global warming is serious problem..There are many programs to solve the global warming. Like "go green", " Saving Our Planet". Beside many research to create alternative energy. How to make our earth more green, concern and care to entire environment. In prediction, that in the last 100 years the temperatures of our planet has increased by 1’ every year. How it can be like that. Because many factory, vehicle produce pollution. Do we stop all those things? Do we need to stop produce millions vehicle? Can we stop global warming directly? We will discuss about green vehicle below.

Absolutely Free From Pollution

What is actually "green vehicle" about? I remember about "Flinstone " movie. All the vehicle from the stone. I think it look heavy. As we know that car designer try to create the light material. Do we back to the old times? Using bike is the alternative. Besides it make us healthy, this transportation is 100% free from pollution. There are many innovation to create green vehicle, like using alternative material, like the picture below.

Wooden Biycle, Nice Innovation

environmentally friendly cars from bamboo

We can't separate the environment friendly from technology. Kazumi Matsushige with many researher from Venture Business Laboratory of Kyoto University, Japan. create environmentally friendly cars from bamboo it called Bamgoo. This car is moving by electrical energy. With weight 60 kg, 2.7 meters long, 1.3 meters wide and 1.65 meters high. With the distance of 50 km before refilling returned. With this innovation expected to create more environmentally friendly vehicles with materials such as wood, bamboo, straw and peanut shells.

Wooden car

I think it match with the tittle of this hub " green vehicle, back to nature". Because we have many natural material to applicate in the vehicle. Although it need several research. Do you agree with green vehicle? I hope we can discuss this topic. Or if you found another "green vehicle", I am glad to hear from you.

      I am really surprised to read only positive comments here! Although the idea is interesting, making vehicules with wood is simply creating another problem.

      Deforestation also drives climate change. Forest soils are moist, but without protection from sun-blocking tree cover they quickly dry out. Trees also help perpetuate the water cycle by returning water vapor back into the atmosphere. Without trees to fill these roles, many former forest lands can quickly become barren deserts.

      Removing trees deprives the forest of portions of its canopy, which blocks the sun’s rays during the day and holds in heat at night. This disruption leads to more extreme temperatures swings that can be harmful to plants and animals.

      Trees also play a critical role in absorbing the greenhouse gases that fuel global warming. Fewer forests means larger amounts of greenhouse gases entering the atmosphere—and increased speed and severity of global warming.

      My friend, FullOfLoveSites. Thanks for coming and share your opinion about this topic. I have the same idea with you about flinstone bike and ifugao tribes. I am glad you enjoy this hub. Take care!

      These Flinstone bicycles look like they're made by the Ifugao tribes (in the Philippines), since their location is mountainous -- these bikes are great if you're going to drive on a downward slope. Great green inventions indeed! Voted up and interesting. :)

      Very interesting! I believe that Bamboo could play a much bigger roll in both vehicle and home construction.
