How Hybrid Cars Can Solve The Energy Crisis

We have worked for many years building a worldwide infrastructure to recycle bottles, cans, newspapers, cars - almost anything - except energy. If the very existence of our society rests on energy, why do we make no effort to recycle it? Hybrids are, in fact, the only drive system that allows the kinetic energy of motion to be recycled for future reuse.

How does this work, and why is it so important? As basic physics tells us, energy is required to get a vehicle moving. In conventional vehicles, that energy comes from petroleum, which is converted into kinetic energy by a combustion engine. However, in order for the vehicle to stop, it must then dump this kinetic energy as waste heat generated by the brakes - an extravagant process that repeats itself over and over countless times, day in, day out. And this waste of energy is acceptable?
