Think one car can change the world? Charles Greenwood does. His design firm, HumanCar, will unveil on Earth Day 2009 a vehicle comprised entirely of recycled plastics that can hit 60 mph without burning a single fossil fuel. The $15,500 HumanCar can run exclusively on manpower, with four passengers propelling it forward using electricity-producing rowing handles, or, if you’re not in the mood for a workout, it can climb the steepest hills with the help of an electric-assist motor. You pump in place of gas pumps.
