“The Extended-Range Electric Vehicle that is redefining the automotive world is no longer just a rumor. In fact, its propulsion system is so revolutionary, it’s unlike any other vehicle or electric car that’s ever been introduced. And we’re making this remarkable vision a reality, so that one day you’ll have the freedom to drive gas-free.”

My roommate is on the waitlist, but can america’s first full-large-scale-production electric vehicle succeed? Well we could of been here 5+ years ago had the  dumb idiots at GM not smashed theirs.

 

So..when does everyone realize no more gas soon?

 

Peak oil needs to become a household topic, aka, CNN need to get its hands on it and scare everyone back into $9.00/gal gas.

Carbon credit markets-

“Carbon credits are a key component of national and international attempts to mitigate the growth in concentrations of greenhouse gases (GHGs). Carbon trading is an application of an emissions trading approach. Greenhouse gas emissions are capped and then markets are used to allocate the emissions among the group of regulated sources. The idea is to allow market mechanisms to drive industrial and commercial processes in the direction of low emissions or less “carbon intensive” approaches than are used when there is no cost to emitting carbon dioxide and other GHGs into the atmosphere. Since GHG mitigation projects generate credits, this approach can be used to finance carbon reduction schemesbetween trading partners and around the world.”

This is a feasable way to promote green industry, penalize polluters, and help get rid of global warming.

The concern of passing the dollar down river to consumer is garbage because a greener business in an industry will have less carbon costs. Thusly they will promote the lowest prices, driving the other business’ to evolve or die.

Cut the red tape, help save the economy by creating both the market and a carbons futures market and have people INVEST in green companies.
