Inventor Peter Dearman of London has invented a car that is powered by liquid air: no gas, no batteries. He says the technology has been around for a while, and that since we’re running out of fossil fuel, it’s time to offer a non-toxic solution. It won’t produce any emissions because it’s only air – just using heat from the atmosphere and liquid air. An engineering company in Europe is creating a state-of-the-art version of Inventor Dearman’s prototype car later this year.
Liquid air can be used for more then powering cars. It is currently being used on the outskirts of London in a power plant storing wind energy at night to be used during the day to power local houses. The United States has more than $100 billion earmarked for investment in energy storage over the next 10 years, so this technology could be coming to a town near you.
When asked why he has spent 40 years inventing various technologies that he hopes will help save the planet, Dearman shrugged and said “Why not?’
