Green News Roundup: Monday, September 26th, 2011

 

I hope everyone had a good weekend. I spent my weekend eating deep fried foods at the local fair and getting one of my cars into emissions compliance. One of our writers, Charis Michelsen, spent her weekend at the EV Conversion Convention, and she’s provided us with detailed coverage of the event. Other top stories include a new compressed air car speed record, what EV companies to invest in, and Toyota’s disturbing new “Prius People” ad campaign.
