The majority of fossil fuel consumption occurs in the transport sector. Cars and trucks spew billions of pounds of emissions into the atmosphere every year. I describe some alternative fuels that are increasingly being used, such as corn ethanol and biodiesel. I describe how these fuels are best used, and when and where. I describe how hybrid autos work, and how all-electric vehicles and fuel cell-powered vehicles work. I give you some guidelines to use if you're interested in investing in alternative vehicles. And finally I survey some of the more exotic alternative transportation systems being developed.
