electric ars still pollute. you need to get the electric into the car and you need the metal and plastic to build the car.
wanna be REALLY green? either walk or ride a horse.

+1 for that... If we all had electric cars, I wonder how many Nuclear Reactors andor Coal Burning Plants they would need to build to generate all that electricity?  

yes there are other ways to generate electricity... but I rather see a fields of trees then wind turbines, imo.

For every good deed there is bad one that comes out of it... I know it is very cynical of me... but true!

But that won't help solve the problem. People are not going to give up their cars and start riding bikes and horses to work. It won't happen.

Gasoline is a finite solution that keeps going up in price.

Hydrogen in itself is a joke. Even if there was an affordable hydrogen mass produced that everyone had access to,  we would still require hydro stations and those would be expensive to install.

With an electric car you can get the adapters made at your house.

I know we still need to create energy. That is why I purchased stock in solar energy a few months back. I believe in it. I also thing wind turbines are possible as long as done right. If we can set up off sore drilling, why can't we make off shore wind turbine plants?

if you're going off-shore, just use tidal power. there was a thing on BBC news recently about some things that sit in the sea, riding the waves and they generate as much power as several wind turbines and they don't block the view!

I hope Ships can see them! As those would make great water mine explosives!

Wasn't the rise of gas prices in the 70's the official reason of why GIJoe went down to 8" tall?
