(no problem solved here, right?)
yep(brilliant observation, btw), theres still alot of that going around, and its a valid point from some points of view, not from others. if you want the electric car to get us out of dependence on foreign oil, than its good, we are the mecca of coal here in the US, we have a ton of shale oil too, and wind, plenty of oppertunity for hydroelectric as well. all these potential power sources are why my moneys on the US being a superpower for the next 200 years or so. if you want it for the environment, its not so good. imagine how bad the brown outs in california will be when all the electric cars catch on. i wonder when people will wise up and swith to the cleanest of all power sources, nuclear power.


in the long haul, things will work out, we just need to better educate the consumer to secure our 'alpha male' status globally.
