Jay Leno & the EcoJetJay Leno was in Vegas last night showing off a super eco-car that he inspired. Called the EcoJet, this new car is called a jet because that’s exactly the type of engine it’s got.

It’s being shown at the SEMA show, who’s slogan tells you that it’s the show “where everything makes it’s debut.” The show continues through November 3.

AutoblogGreen even got to talk to Leno about the car:

“I wanted to do something with bio fuels to show that we’re a little bit responsible,” Leno told AutoblogGreen last night during a special unveiling of the car at the Wynn’s Casino. “I wanted something fast, something exciting and still environmentally friendly. The jet was the most compatible with biodiesel.”

ABG continues,

BASF furnished the latest environmentally friendly water-born paint formula. “You can spray it in your kid’s nursery,” quipped Leno, who told us that he is converting his shop to solar power.

Biodiesel, water-based paints, solar power? It’s like my green dream come true!

Josh Spear also provided coverage of the event:

Jay said, “We live in an era where liking cars and liking the environment don’t really seem to fit– especially high performance cars.” He not only wanted to disprove that, but wanted to inspire America’s youth to explore the possibilities and follow their dreams– this car for Leno started as a pipe dream, “and went from zero to here in seven months.” Although the Eco Jet was not designed to be a production car — and we may never see it for sale — after a few good conversations with folks at GM, we’re confident they understand innovations like these are crucial.

If you want all of the juicy details on the car, you’re going to read the press release, because it won’t make any sense coming from me!

“Hero cow” becomes media darling to non-vegans everywhere

This pariah has earned her freedom through resistance and a seat atop the pedestal few non-human animals have ever sat. It’s The Hunger Games and she’s our Cow-niss.

THIS WEEK IN THE VEGANVERSE III

No one wants to date vegans, meat is getting the mayo treatment, and Finland get’s the first taste of new vegan fast food AGAIN.

Please stop attempting to express love through animal exploitation

While I’m a huge sucker for the sweet stuff, I can’t escape the seasonal dread of seeing lovers carelessly link up gestures of romance with animal exploitation.
