Chinese Man Cons Sky News

It would be funny but for how cripplingly stupid this points out the media to be. That this made it on to the air on Sky News is beyond revolting. (h/t HarelDan on Twitter). Sky News. For shame.

A Chinese farmer has invented a wind-powered electric car that he says could save his country from the pollution caused by its rapidly growing car market.

An hour from downtown Beijing, the dusty village of Banjiehe looks an unlikely place to produce scientific innovation.

Its rows of brick, utilitarian houses are surrounded by cornfields and fruit trees.

But in a small tractor workshop, 55-year-old farmer Tang Zhenping has invented the prototype of a car that he believes could revolutionise China’s auto industry.

Mr Tang’s model – built in just three months for around £1,000 – is electric.

Its engine uses scrap parts from a motorcycle and electric scooter, while its steering wheel, upholstery and headlights all come from a Chinese-made Xiali hatchback.

 

If you need me to explain why this is impossible, please google “perpetual motion”.
