    Default Electric Cars

    Interesting article ... scientifically oriented

    The findings: electric cars may be even worse for the environment than gasoline engines.

    I'm not sure about Blackstone, but I doubt that I have ever argued that electric was more green than IC. I have argued that it diversifies energy sources for transportation applications. I hate seeing our dollars funding A holes of the world.

    Saw a tesla in Rice Village this weekend and had to ask my son what kind of car it was. Another guy getting out of a BMW was laughing and shaking his head as he walked by. It had great lines but I should have known it was a turd from the get go.

    Same here... If the Obama admin would get out of the way we could take care of business here. Keystone Pipeline, fracking, etc...

    I agree and will add the state of NC and Forsyth county (controled by the city of Winston Salem).

    I don't think this gov. really cares about electric cars or any kind of clean energy. To them it is all about destroying the oil and coal companys to inflate energy cost to the point the middle and upper middle class people have reliy on the gov. for help which inturns makes the gov. more powerful. Its the new normal. high gas prices and eletric bills. Just wait until the regulations come into effect.
