alywa: This whole electric car thing is such a crock of BS.1. Electric cars run on coal. I thought you eco-whack jobs hate coal. I'd much rather have 100 V8 engines running in my neighborhood than a coal plant next door.2. Where do people charge? In my town there are 8 (yes 8) charging plugs, oh-so-conveninently located in a city garage downtown. Seeing has how charging takes 8-24 hours (at best), how would I charge there and then actually be able to ever use my car?3. The batteries are an ecological disaster. Cadmium and Lithium mining is dirty, dangerous, and supports a lot of countries that don't like us. Oil, on the other hand, is readily available right here in our backyard (and Canada). No mess, no wars to fight over it. Clean and safe.4. Electricity is expensive. I'm sure it costs a lot more per mile to run these golf carts than it does to buy gas.5. If electric cars are so good, why did GM kill off their project in the 1990s and destroy all the cars? Because they wanted to ge rid of the embarrassment and stink. If there were a model of how to make profit from them, someone would be doing them.6. Electric cars are slow. None of them are safe at highway speed, I'm surprised the NTSB even agrees to allow them on our interstates given their awful crash records, inability to keep to speed, etc.7. They always catch on fire. When was the last time you heard of a gasoline car fire? Yet, we almost daily hear of another Volt or Tesla blowing up.Seriously... just wait until Hydrogen Fuel Cells come out. Then we'll have a real form of alternative combustion. Until then, its gas all the way for me.
