Sorry folks, I'm sooo against it...
Well life is full of tradeoffs... cuz I would trade keeping the troops home over the aesthetics of 10000 acres of desert.
my 2 cents. I'm sooo against the evils of big oil! Would be nicer to get back all the Gulf of Mexico and the other spill areas all over the world if we had done this transition to electric and PV solar 30 years ago... No Iraq Wars 1 & 2... Afghanistan never would have been an issue... since the reason it was fought over was a Unocal Pipeline from Russia to the water through that sad country. And if we had never messed with the middle east... maybe alQaeda might not have cared that much about us.
To say nothing of Fukushima (nearly lost Tokyo, no dead man switches), Three Mile Island, Chernobyl etc...
Germany has already started the transition away from crazy energy policy and we would do well to follow their lead on energy.
Sorry to rant... but I really think we need to continue to examine our priorities. And go as clean as we can.
Wanted an EV forever. Now driving a 2013 LEAF SL. The car keeps living up to the promise, and CHAdeMO chargers keep extending my range!
7.4kW of power from 34 panels. Solar Powered Driving is hot!
Imagine a world w/o gasoline. No blood for oil.
