Elections and Alternative Fuels
Saturday, October 25, 2008
There are several issues on the November ballet about alternative energy. What should we be doing to promote electric and alternative fuel efforts? How should we vote on these issues - Propositions 10 & 87?
Also, this is a chance to look at where all the various automobile manufacturers are in the efforts to build electric vehicles. Many companies have announced plans to have an electric vehicle in production by 2010 (almost 1 year from now). What are the options on the table and will these be offered in the USA?

Come bring whatever news releases you are aware of and lets lay them out on the table. Time for some straight talk, since we don't hear enough of that these day, with politics, financial mismanagements, etc.
