The transportation sector, dominated by the personal automobile, is responsible for over a quarter of North America's total energy consumption. Motor vehicles account for the overwhelming majority of harmful atmosphere emissions.

"The Zero-Carbon Car" reviews the issues of climate change, peak oil, urban sprawl, and geopolitical and socioeconomic disruption related to fossil fuel use. The book argues that, while there is no way to avoid the eventual demise of the automobile, there is an opportunity for the automotive industry to develop an ultra-efficient, zero-carbon-emissions automobile.

The book documents the successful design and construction of a zero-carbon vehicle, proving that the technology is not only possible, it is viable today. For those who wish to fabricate their own vehicle, plans and software are provided in the book and on the accompanying website.

"The Zero-Carbon Car" is a must-read for automotive enthusiasts, environmentalists, and anyone who cares about how their transportation choices affect the planet.
