Between 1994 and 2001, when I travelled through five continents, I experienced the first signs of global warming in front of my eyes: In Africa, there were droughts like never seen before. In South America the rain was falling at an all-time high. In Afghanistan, dryness and hunger prevailed like at no time before.
Thereupon I decided, not to wait 20 more years, until anyone creates a car, which doesn’t emit any CO2. I decided to build it on my own. With this round-the-world-trip, I’d like to demonstrate, that there are solutions against global warming. As a well travelled man and a teacher, I didn’t have any clue, how to construct such a solar vehicle, of course. Due to the help of the Technical University Lucerne, the HTA Lucerne, four students started to build a solar vehicle, which was supposed to survive a world trip. Their names were Tobias Berchtold, Michael Fischer, Martin Kneubühler and Beat Schmid.
Louis Palmer is definitely a man with a mission.Techblissonline Dot Com wishes him all success in his journey.Don’t you think this technology is very desirable and needs support from governments across the world.Let the manufacturers build cheaper solar cars and let the governments not continue to look at making money by selling petrol/oil/natural gas to its people.Keep track of Louis Palmer and cheer him at Solartaxi Dot Com
