“Proud To Be An American”
Since: Apr 07
#1 Aug 22, 2011
This venture reminds me of the time when GM joined with Toyota in the mid '1980s and ended up with what was a disgrace to the once proud Chevy Nova name. The end result was a 4 cylinder box with no trunk...It was not a Nova it was a Tercel, like no one would have noticed.
As for the Ford/Toyoto venture...The golf cart has already been invented and if everyone in America was a golfer the lights would dim if everyone tried to charge their carts. On a mass scale there is no power grid for charging the more demanding electric cars, the grid can hardly handle the drain of air conditioning.
At this time solar and wind won’t solve anything so the answer to energy is coming very slowly. Those who are trying to rush it up and appear like they care for clean air, clean water and your kids it's all political with the hopes suckers will vote for more self-serving regulation hungry sleazebags...democRats.
“Everyone knows that!!!”
