POZNAN: The first solar-powered car to travel around the world ended its journey at the U.N. climate talks here in Poland on Thursday, arriving with the message that clean technologies are available now to stop global warming.

“This is the first time in history that a solar-powered car has travelled all the way around the world without using a single drop of petrol,” said Louis Palmer, the Swiss schoolteacher who made the trip. The car can travel up to 90 kmph and cover 300 km on a fully charged battery. — AP
