Recent numbers say American lawnmowers are using 800 million gallons of gasoline a year, while producing 5 percent of this country’s air pollution. So, what’s the solution? Stop mowing the lawn? (The wife says that is NOT an option!).
Global warming expert Corbett Kroehler might have a solution… a biodiesel lawnmower. This link (Keyboard-Culture-movies.com) even has a video of the whole idea:
Operating a lawn mower one hour could create the same pollution levels as driving a new car 340 miles. A single gasoline lawn mower could create more pollution than 73 new cars.
A green lawn mower to keep your yard green and trim… not a bad idea.
