Everyone knows that Popeye got his strength from spinach, but a team of researchers at Vanderbilt University believe we harness certain properties from spinach in order to generate electricity.

There are a lot of hybrid sedans out on the market these days, but the 2012 Civic Hybrid just happens to be the most fuel-efficient one available in the U.S. Inhabitat recently had an opportunity to take the new sedan out – complete with the new Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) hybrid drivetrain – and we have to admit that we enjoyed the ride. The new features and technology available in the 2012 Civic Hybrid offer a fuel economy rating of 44 mpg across the board for city/highway/combined driving — up from the 40/43/41 miles of the 2011 Civic. The 2012 design also features sleeker styling and the interior comes equipped with both cloth and a sustainably sourced leather alterative.
