Green News Roundup: Monday, September 19th

Here at Gas 2.0, we’re committed to bringing you the best news possible about a post-oil world and the greening of transportation technology. These days, there are so many stories, and only so many fingers to write it up. So we’re introducing a new feature; a daily morning roundup of green news from around the web.

For one, it’s a great way to get you news that maybe we didn’t have a chance to write yesterday. We also hope it will lead you to some other great green news websites to discover, as we only have so many words and so many opinions to share. So go and check out these other sites; we’ll still be here, grinding away at the daily influx of great green news.

Today’s highlights include a record-breaking motorcycle powered by veggie-oil, a Spanish plug-in hybrid concept car, and Nissan’s plans for selling the Leaf EV in China.
