To those who think electric cars will be bad for the environment, this story shows that under every measure electric cars will cause less pollution than gas-powered cars.
Story goes on to address a number of other cheap shots routinely hurled at electric cars. So please, give it a read.
If we are serious about re-energizing American industry, we need to get in front of the electric car revolution.
We want the jobs that will be created by designing, building and operating more, modern, pollution-controlled power plants be they coal, natural gas, nuclear, solar, wind, geothermal or whatever.
We want the R&D jobs needed to make electric cars that go farther and look cool.
We want the parts production, assembly, marketing, sales and repair jobs that come with introducing a new generation of vehicles nationwide.
We want the design, construction and installation jobs that will come with creating a network of public re-charging stations and home-based recharging kits.
And we want to become that much less dependent on oil and gasoline, especially oil from unfriendly places and unsavory "allies."
