There's a new day dawning in the world of electric cars.
Oil-fueled transportation isn't sustainable. We always knew it, though it was hard to admit.
But there's an alternative.
Electric vehicles are sustainable transportation, in ways that other "future cars" - like biodiesel, flex-fuel and hydrogen cars - are not.
...problem solved, right? Um, not quite.
...a powerful bunch of politicians and corporations (call them the Oilies, or call them the 1%) are deeply interested in keeping gas-guzzlers all over the roadscape until every last teaspoon of crude oil has been refined and burned.
Why? Because it's profitable - at our future's expense.
So about five years ago, a documentary filmmaker named Chris Paine showed us how the automakers and oil industry had conspired with politicians to "kill the electric car", to deprive us of even the OPTION of buying our beloved cars, and what we saw in his film made us really mad. Lots of us got busy and fought back.
If you saw Who Killed the Electric Car? and got mad, too...come on in. You're in good company.
Happily, now there are a lot of ways for you to get an electric vehicle!
Come on in and have a look around, take your time. You'll find lots of reliable electric car information and interviews with my friends at conversion shops, electric vehicle motor and lithium battery suppliers, automaker spokespersons, and folks who have built beer-budget electric vehicles in the backyard.
Interested in converting your gas-gobbler to electric, and wondering where to start?
This is where you'll find:
...and other conversion-related things. Don't be shy, jump right in!
And finally, the best kept secret about electric cars? (I can share it with you, because we're friends now; )
They're really, REALLY fun to drive.
Try it once and you'll never want to give up the keys.
