Global warming in Switzerland
tomsguide.com has a great story on Pascal Prokop of Switzerland. Pascal has ingeniously tackled the current episode of severe global warming by installing a wood-burning stove in his car.
This is Pascal Prokop. Pascal drives a 1990 Volvo 240 station wagon, which he has, uh, improved, with the addition of a real wood-burning stove. According to the captions on the photos, which are credited to Reuters, Mr. Prokop obtained an operating permit for his stove-car from the Swiss Technical Inspection Authority, making it perfectly legal to operate. We're sure it's perfectly safe. Apart from the fire.
