Interesting. I'm going to check out "Revenge of the Electric Car." I hope the car wins. Yes, about infrastructure. We've spent about a century working on the gasoline/diesel engine, and about thirty years saying that climate change is a myth. Most things are not very good the first time around. It takes me about thirty drafts to create writing that I'm satisfied with.

Interesting about regenerative braking.

I liked "Revenge of the Electric Car."

I finally saw my neighbor with the solar panels and the electric car. His bill last month was $20 for electricity, natural gas, and electrical power for his Volt. So - free fuel for his car, free electricity, and a reduction of his natural gas cost. Don't know what it'll be in winter; he'll produce less electricity, but he won't be using air conditioning. Anyway, he's happy. Plus, he's doing a good thing.

I love my Honda, an it'll last for another few years. After that, I could see doing what my neighbor did.

A cool thing I just found out. If you buy an electric car, you are eligible for a tax credit of up to $7500. Research this ahead of time to find out which specific cars are eligible
