Panic over, the global warming problem will be solved when Redwood City's charging stations are up and running.

The Cracker Barrell Restaurant chain has received government money to put charging stations at their locations along the Interstates in the South. Although you can't get a full charge during a short meal, anything will be better than nothing. Eat slow and linger and you may get another 60-80 miles down the road . It's a step in the right direction.

If you consider how old electric cars are, it's not really that much of a step, designed in the 1830s, the first commercial use of electric vehicles was in 1897.
