      If you would like another perspective on EV's, the California initiative to phase in (zero emissions was the goal) electric cars, read the current issue of Home Power magazine. The sidebar on page 20 tells the story.
      An NPR radio broadcast www link, maybe 6 months ago on one of the TXSES Chapter yahoo sites, played the nationally broadcast segment of protesters trying to stop the Ford Motor Co. from hauling off and crushing their fleet of production electric cars. Owners, actually leasees, and non-owners alike were angry that the cars were removed from circulation against the wishes of the public.

      Some may say that pulling the plug on life support is murder.

      The pure electric cars such as the EV1 were a fabrication made by
      the collaboration of government and auto makers trying to appease
      the public with a product that went against the grain of free
      enterprise capitalism.  Yes, if the government supplies
      enough "incentives" on both sides they can create a balance between
      supply and demand that makes something appear economical.  However,
      they eventually change their direction with the wandering whim of
      the public, and the house of cards falls down.

      I would love for there to be a large market of efficient electric
      vehicles.  Actually, today one can buy a production vehicle that
      also promotes the short range and lower speeds - an NEV like the GEM.

      If someone wants an electric car bad enough, they can make one or
      commission someone else to do it.  Here is a great organization of
      folks who have gotten their hands dirty and love to share what they
