A New Kind of Hybrid Beats High Gas Prices
|"The days of inexpensive gasoline," admitted a car company exec, "are gone." Other authorities agree: high pump prices aren't going away.
But the new mini cars are cramped and less safe. Today's hybrid and electric cars are expensive. And cheaper energy technologies are years away.
But there's a solution we've overlooked. It's the subject of Hybrid Neighborhoods, the CarpeHoram ("Seize the Hour") mini-book readable in just an hour.
The Affordable Hybrids
Living in a Hybrid Neighborhood, says John Gann, is like driving a hybrid car. You save gas by burning it only when you need to and not all the time.
A hybrid car makes that possible with an electric motor. Hybrid Neighborhoods (HNs) do the same thing by putting places closer together.
|Money for Kids' College
They're areas overlooked in favor of places depend-
Walking or driving shorter distances, HN residents burn gas only when they need to, not all the time. And money saved on gas goes toward the kids' college, retirement, or a dream vacation or home.
So with high oil prices—and bloated home prices in most suburbs--HNs are a smart choice.
Faster, Easier Reading
Busy people need information more than ever. But most don't have time to read 200-page books. And 80% of their value is in just 20% of their pages.
So CarpeHoram boils things down to under 40 pages readable in about an hour. User-friendly formatting make CarpeHoram reading easier than book reading.
