Electric Car Comeback
8 years ago
The major car manufacturers managed to ditch electric cars a few years back, (http://www.sonyclassics.com/whokilledtheelectriccar/). Now they're making a bit of a comeback with Tesla Motor's Roadster, http://www.teslamotors.com. The lithium-ion battery is reported to be recycleable and provides a 250 mile range. I couldn't find any listing of the price though.

I have to keep at this. Electric cars and hybrids are not a solution, they are the continuation of the problem. By supporting them you do more damage than good. First off, more greenhouse gases are produced in the making of ANY car than comes out the exhaust. Second, people cannot drive. Every driver gets into an accident every 4 yrs. Someone you know will die in a car accident. I have never had an accident, I must be different somehow. As a long haul trucker I saw a dead human at the side of the road every two weeks. Thrid, cars are the way society self destructs environmentally as well as economically. To survive and to save the planet and the animals, we need to live in apartment buildings, and we need to use public transportation. It is that simple, you are actually doing more damage than good with this kind of talk, you are the auto industry's puppet, and you damn the next generation. Car accidents are the most common cause of death for teenagers. So, please wake up. The symbol of no cars includes cars.
