OK, now I have an electric car but, I need an one hour charge at work to get safely back home. There are no public chargers in the area and my electric cord has been identified as a "tripping hazard" at work. I have only one practical option left, carry a small generator and burn about a pint of gas each day before leaving work. I am ready to kick gas but, the world needs places to plug in. Imagine if there were places to charge at work, at shopping centers and every 40 miles just off of the highways. Imagine electric cars that can go hundreds of miles on a single charge and then charge to 80% in only 30 minuets or perhaps, charge for only 15 minuets just to get you where you need to be. We have this technology now but plans to implement it in the USA have stalled. We also need a solid national standard for charging cars so that every charging station can charge any EV. I am watching the rest of the world move forward with all kinds of new transportation systems, alternative fuels, and energy projects. Where are we going? Back to coal I guess? Back to fossil fuels and pumping up the stuff up as fast as we can until it is finally gone forever? I think that by the time our resources run out it will be too late for mankind to find a way forward. This is why we need gas at $12 a gallon really soon!
