RE: [hreg] Solar Resrve
Yep, Better Place , it’s amazing!! They were here in Houston about 2 weeks ago at AJC. Mayor Parker keynoted. Noble Energy sponsored and is continuing to work with AJC. Absolutely, Bill, thank you!
Mike Granoff, head of Oil Inde penden ce Policies spoke. Granoff’s presentation had us intensely on the edge of our chairs. Afterwards, I asked him if BP’s spill was helping his efforts in Washington . Sadly, he said there is still much resistance. The US is not embracing Better Place ’s program as other countries have.
We have to get past our fear of change. Maybe Bill Murray style, Baby Steps!

“For two generations, political leaders from both major political parties have identified oil de penden ce as a major vulnerability, and have asserted the need for the U.S. to break that addiction. But despite all of the passionate rhetoric, precious little has been proposed by way of a tangible strategy.
Today, there is hope that this is about to change.
Democratic and Republican members of the House and the Senate just”

http://www.better place.com/ This is a interesting site!
I hope I am not stealing someone elses thunder here, I seem to have forgotten whether the link was from Hreg or facebook. Anyhow this is partly the way I see the future start to look. I know, I know, the old saying of " it will take decades to change the way we drive!" Well , not exactly take for instance the internet. As a civilization it did not take too long for that to be coordinated into everything we know, now our phones even log on! Extended Wi-Fi !! So electric vehicles (EV'S) do not have to be 20 years away, 5-10 ton electric hybris trucks are already rolling out in Florida and being sent overseas. Uh, Duh? Keep the pressure on , keep brain-storming and we'll get this thing right at last!!! Teamsters can learn to operate high-speed trains, hybrid semis. We can figure this out, we HAVE to figure this out. As always thank you Tyra, please keep us in the loop with legal parameters and info that you collect. Re- invent ourselves we deserve it.
