Fiat has launched a Hydrogen version of its new city car, the Panda, which runs on Hydrogen and produces water vapour as its only exhaust gas which, unlike the emissions of a normal car or, indeed, the methane produced as the exhaust gas of bamboo eating Panda, is harmless to the environment.
Fiat intends to use this revolutionary model, which accounts for just part of its extensive research programme, to explore a new technological solution, assess car behaviour under actual conditions and determine the total environmental benefits.
Fiat Auto has complemented these sophisticated products, a field where it is a world leader, with campaigns of great social and environmental impact, such as the Methane Project, that aim to reduce emissions and fuel consumption.

  Fiat currency - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The widespread acceptance of a fiat currency is enhanced by a central authority mandating its acceptance under penalty of law and demanding it in payment of taxes or tribute.
What exactly is a “fiat” currency is a matter of some debate, with a spectrum of opinion that runs from those who declare as fiat any currency that is not in a gold standard, silver standard or fully backed by some other commodity, to a wide range of economic theories.
Fiat money is also associated with attempts to control trade: If individuals possess notes which are not redeemable outside of the control of a government, the idea is that they will have to purchase preferentially within the boundaries of the nation, rather than importing (see Protectionism).
