100 mpg: big vehicles that give us big mileage

it seems we may have to rethink the ideal that smaller cars are better for the environment

recently GM has announced that they are working on a electric hybrid Hummer that will get 100 mpg.

but this is not the only 100 mpg automobile that is in the works.

an upstart company Bright Automotive has van (or as they call it fleet vehicle) that can get 100 mpg.

both companies are hoping to have their vehicles out around 2011 or 2012.

Bright automotive is looking get a $450 million loan from the Department of Energy from a program to help car companies to put out fuel efficient cars

My name is Bill Hawthorne, and I represent maacenter.org, a leading web resource for asbestos exposure and mesothelioma cancer information. Our organization is dedicated to increasing awareness of the terrible health consequences of asbestos exposure through the distribution of the best informational materials and public outreach efforts.

I found your site through a search and decided to contact you because of its high environmental and green presence which is extremely important in our movement. Your viewers are extremely savvy and motivated. The promotion of how buildings should now be built using sustainable green products to avoid asbestos and mesothelioma as well as the awareness of past buildings and preventative steps in avoiding asbestos exposure are extremely important. My goal is to get a resource link on your site/blog or even to provide a guest posting to be placed.

I look forward to hearing from you. Please feel free to check out our website. Thank you for your time and consideration.
