What happens if you drive one of these tyres on a solar freakin' roadway?
Goodyear's "living" car tyre converts carbon dioxide into oxygen

Uh-huh, sure. It's that easy. I just charged my cell phone on the maple outside.

I love their figures for the amount of carbon dioxide sequestered. Until of course the tires are worn down so they're disposed of and either incinerated with the carbon then being re-released as CO2, or landfilled and the carbon being re-released as CH4
