Age of Sail


Are we to witness a return to the age of sail?

All well and good but how much does it put onto a bottle of wine?

And it took 2 years before they went bust.

Re: Age of Sail


Hmm, takes over 10 times longer than other craft and I find this statement a little confusing.

The most important numbers, however, are the smallest - the Turanor uses zero gallons of fuel and emits almost no carbon dioxide.
Almost no carbon dioxide? Surely it emits none if it doesn't use any fuel. Give or take the people on board cooking but they'd do that anyway.

Cool looking craft though. Efficiency is the way forward. Cool tech.

I spotted that little discrepency as well, I'd like to know what they meant by that.

You folks would be shocked at some of the things that emit CO2 (not to mention other, nastier, things). The measurements, however, are in the range of PPM (parts per million) or PPT (parts per trillion), so they probably can't say "no CO2".
