Solar Car Travels to UN Climate Change Conference
Poznan, Poland is the place to be this week. The first solar car to travel around the world ended it voyage here, where the United Nations Climate Change Conference is occurring.
The vehicle drove 32,000 miles without a drop of petrol; instead, it used the sun's energy caught by a trailer of solar cells. The noiseless car traveled up to 55 mph and covered around 185 miles on a fully charged battery.

The driver, Louis Palmer, rolled up just in time, carrying chief U.N climate official Yvo de Boer. The UNFCCC has been moving on efficiently throughout the week discussing the youth's role in climate change, how much money the world's poor countries will need to help them adapt to global warming and what President-elect Obama's role should be in the fight against climate change.
The UN Climate Change Conference runs through December 12th and is being broadcasted live on the web.
