Aggregating Skeptical Thought

Now this is a good idea, Race for a green car, nothing motivates the American spirit like money, it’s too bad the Big 3 aren’t motivated by money anymore. The X Prize Foundation is now offering a prize for an environmentally friendly vehicle that meets the following criteria

The winning vehicle will have to achieve at least 43 kilometres per litre (100 miles per US gallon), regardless of the type of fuel it uses. Its carbon emissions must be no more than 125 grams of carbon per kilometre. And it has to be cheap enough to expect sales of 10,000 each year.

Although the carbon emissions requirement is a moderate goal and certainly far better than the US currently has the Eurpeans are already shooting for 130 grams.
