Earthrace Breaks World Record June 27 2008

by ixelr84you • 362,425 views

Finish line crossing of new world record of 60 days

+paul8ain but how do you think it is processed? how it is shipped? Diesel is how. There is no such thing as a net zero CO2 output, everything is connected to diesel in some way.

@xbfalcon351coupe Oh, and a couple more things. OIL is shipped around the world on huge ships AND sometimes those ships spill their cargo everywhere. EVs require very little maintenance, no filter changes, no coolant changes (they don't require the use of TOXIC coolant at all) and no oil changes.

Oh, was the Andy Gil THE Earth Race? In that case it was both parties fault, it was a game of chicken which ended with collision. The Japanese didn't sink it, together Sea Shepherd AND the Japanese accomplished it. What a shame, it was an extremely fine ship.

@xbfalcon351coupe Yes, it takes 7.5 kilowatt-hours of electricity to refine every gallon of gas. An EV can drive 22 miles on that same 7.5 kilowatt-hours!

@norwayfinland That's just awesome! Det hadde vært sykt fett!

@vibratingstring Two things to consider: 1) Gasoline production already uses a considerable amount of electricity. 2) EVs will mostly be charged at night, when demand is low. The Nissan Leaf can drive for 22 miles on the same amount of electricity as it takes to refine a single gallon of gas. In other words: If you were to replace one car that used one gallon of gas to drive 22 miles with an EV, there would be no additional electricity requirement.

@0HippyHunter0 I agree this is stupid, just something for the idle rich to play with... but, enviro-terrorists? There are some VERY real advances being made toward a more sustainable future right now as a result of people working hard to achieve it.

@idontcare80 Do some research, buddy. Producing those batteries is hugely toxic - the nickel, for example, is so toxic that 'US law won't allow it to be processed there - it needs to be shipped to India or Japan - all thaty transportation is environmentally damaging too (do you think the boats, trucks and trains moving it are electric or hybrid? Of course not) Those batteries will get replaced a few times during the life of the vehicle too, adding to waste (the old batteries need disposing too

@aluisious Bio fuels are close to carbon neutral because the plants used to make the fuel remove CO2 from the atmosphere while they are growing.
Report spam or abuse
@CatPilot the other one is electric cars and hybrids - sure, they may be green once you're driving one down the road, but the environmental damage making the thing is huge. The other less touted `waste' is all the old cars that get scrapped so that people can be smug about buying a hybrid in the 1st place - by the time you figure in scrapping the old car and producing the new one, you're not looking too green at all - finally, add in the cost/pollution of making the electricity to recharge it..

You think bio-diesel is a zero emissions product? One simple question: how did they get 77,000 gallons of fuel across the globe? They shipped it on a container ship. How do you raise soy beans to make bio-diesel? How do you transport them? How do you process them? That all consumes energy. Oooops! Maybe you should take your own advice.

@ixelr84you HA! Brilliant. There was no energy used in making that boat? That boat is made out of 100% 'environmentally friendly' components? Further, 77,000 GALLONS OF FUEL!?!??! WHAT A WASTE! !!! I want you to think about this for a second: if you'd used that 77k of fuel to improve this world, for instance driving a semi around the country delivering goods, you could have made the world better. Instead you wasted it driving across the ocean. Not only that, how much food was that?

@idontcare80 One major problem: the electrical grid has inadequate capacity to provide all of the transportation energy needs along with the existing load. A wholesale transition to EV will/would require a huge investment in electrical infrastructure. This is a real cost in terms of "environmental impact". It may be more environmentally effective to continue using decentralized transportation energy generation possible still fuel onboard. Many other ideas are also worth trying.

These are the same idiots who don't realize it takes more energy and resources to "recycle" glass and plastic bottles than it does to just make new ones from scratch, because they can't do the math. They're the same morons who for decades now have blocked clean, safe, efficient nuclear energy, because they don't understand the physics. They're the same dopes who would have you believe it takes less energy to charge electric cars than run internal combustion engines, because they have no clue.

Too bad this boat is now littering up the bottom of the ocean. I hope no animals died or suffered from the fuel or debris.

@ixelr84you 0% carbon footprint?!!! Aparently you need to educate yourself on the production of bio diesel. Think about how much oil based fuel is used just to grow and harvest the "bio" part of the fuel compounded by the energy used to turn it into burnable fuel then get back to me.
Report spam or abuse
actually burning bio deisel is still a combustion reaction so the products are still CO2 and H2O, as with every fuel. the only difference is that bio deisel combustions create more moles of gas and therefore less fuel is needed to fuel the engine.

@ixelr84you Let me get this straight - burning 77,000 gallons of biodeisel makes no pollution at all? I'm not talking about `carbon footprint' here, I'm curious to know how many pollutants are coming out the exhausts.

enviro friendly or not that is still a cool boat that I wouldnt mind having. And as far as an earth race for green people they are not very smart in stating that 77,000 + or - of gallons was used I mean why didnt they use solar power or a sail boat like the beautiful Hydroptere and make the sails out of some flexable solar panels to chrage some batteries for power when there wasn't any wind I mean really that bio diesel could have been used for something far more important. Still cool boat tho

If you call 1 367 520 Pounds or 620 metric tons of carbon dioxide for no contamination you are ignorant. On the other hand people are starving and some are racing around the world on their food and on top of it feel good about it, yey we are making the earth a better place by doing this. Stop acting like you care and use the food for its purpose. Grow a tree or something if you want to save the planet.

@xbfalcon351coupe Even if an EV is charged entirely by an electrical grid that is powered by a coal burning power plant, it's STILL cleaner than a ICE powered vehicle. The electricity is much cheaper per mile than gas. It takes a considerable amount of electricity to produce every gallon of gas. Gasoline also has to be transported by a truck to a gas station. EVs can be charged by ANYTHING; Coal, nuclear, solar, wind, hydro, ocean waves, anything! No other vehicle can claim that.

Traditions die hard in Japan. And industries that keep those traditions alive die even harder. There is a substitute for every product made from the body of a whale. Most of those substitutes have been around for more that 100 years. If a society won't stop consuming a resource until that resource is extinct then, that society will, eventually, consume itself. The inhabitants of Easter Island realized this truth too late. Let's hope the inhabitants of Earth are not as short sighted.

@AeroInfo56 It doens't matter what it is. They wasted, by their own admission, 77,000 gallons of fuel. That 77,000 could have offset the fuel used in production somewhere else, instead it was used in a pointless excusrion to prove nothing. How environmentally friendly is that? The fact is this: they don't care about the environment, they care about being better than others. It's called elitism.

@idontcare80 You are absolutely right, but those advances aren't being made by Greenpeace or Al Gore. Those advances are coming from GE or 3M. And, they are enviro-terrorists.

@xbfalcon351coupe What are you talking about? The main addition to a hybrid vehicle is a battery and producing batteries is not any more damaging to the environment than producing anything else. If you're talking about pure EVs that's a whole different story. Not only are they MUCH more efficient, but they also require little to no maintenance which further reduced their environmental impact.

@xbfalcon351coupe I'm a student and my income is currently well below the poverty line, so I don't own a car right now. It's likely that the next car that I own will be an EV. I do love fast cars and I'd like to have something quick for the weekends and an EV for a daily driver. We call propane LPG here too and that's great that you're willing to drive something cleaner than a gasoline powered car. Natural gas vehicles are commonly offered here in the US, but no one buys them.

not mention that lets just say the fuel cost alone was set @ an $2.50 a gallon ( U.S.) the fuel alone was 192,500 U.S. dollars (and I am quite sure that they paid alot more for it that two dollars and fifty cents) Just think of what that money could have been used for ...... but in the long run it is always easier to spend another persons money.

@AeroInfo56 I understand what you're trying to say, but you have to realize you are wrong. Biodiesel is not a 0 emission product. Somebody has to grow the soy beans from which it was produced. Then they have to process it. Then they have to transport it. You think they carried 77,000 gallons of biodiesel on this little boat? No. They hauled it from the other side of the world. Farts "do damage ot the ecosystem"? Do you hear yourself?

@idontcare80 And as for EV's being non polluting, what do you think they run on??? Do you think that electricity comes at no cost? Maybe the EV owner can be smug driving down the road, but somewhere a power station is producing that electricity - not many are solar or wind driven either - most are coal or gas fired.

@xbfalcon351coupe EVs don't use nickel in their batteries. The patent for the nickel–metal hydride battery is held by Chevron and they wont allow the battery to be used in that kind of application for obvious reasons. Cars are shipped from Japan anyway. The batteries last over 100,000 miles and much of a lithium-ion battery can be recycled. The parts of the battery that can't be recycled can be safely disposed of in a land fill.
