“What is the best way for Americans be green and sustainable?”

 

I have to admit something. As an American, I love monster trucks. I think its glorious how these big over-sized pieces of machinery can move around and crush puny smaller cars. It’s the perfect amalgamation of art and science, and is really really fun to watch. But as a Californian, Renewable Energy Engineer, and Climate Hawk I am worried about the climate emissions that these vehicles have.

Luckily, American ingenuity has no boundaries. Introducing the ODYSSEY Battery BIGFOOT No. 20 Monster Truck, or E-BIGFOOT. The E-BIGFOOT is the world’s first fully electric monster truck, powered by 36 ODYSSEY PC1200 car batteries, of which 30 are dedicated custom-built DC electric motor. With absolutely zero petroleum usage, this vehicle will not emit any harmful pollutants into the atmosphere during its operation. Whether you like monster trucks or not, this is an amazing step forward for implementing sustainability in entertainment.
