My crappy gas vehicle against your wonderful electric vehicle. I'll be ready whenever you are. Somehow I figure you never will be.
So, you didn't follow the emerging technologies discussion? Damn, I thought the teevee example would make it easy.

I didn't bother. You don't own an electric vehicle because they suck, you already admitted it isn't zero emissions, so I guess the only reason to own one would be to make you feel better about yourself. Liberals need that badly, so I guess there will be a market for them after all!

Here's something for your enjoyment. Electric vehicles have been around since 1830's, so I'm not sure where the 'emerging technology' fits here.....unless it's been 'emerging' for the last 170 years or so.

History of Electric Vehicles

Electrics are ok for local errand running. The biggest problem is the recharge time.

In the age of Obama, most people can't afford a second car that's useless half the day.

Although I hear, "anyone can buy a truck."

Okay. I should work on Wall St.

Higher demand in concert with the current climate of resistance to new power generation (thanx to the lefties) = higher electric prices. It's a simple principle. California did an excellent job of re-demonstrating that principle a few years back. It made the national news for months if you recall.

And of course the media sold it as "deregulation."

The gov't deregulated the wholesale price while capping the retail price.

So, you can't predict how an increase in demand will raise rates?

Double-wasteful! 'Cuz they like, have electric campfires an' stuff nowadays! No more polluting the Great Outdoors with that carbon-based woody-typee-stuff found in the Great Outdoors!
