There is blood on our hands again

(From the song 'Blood on our Hands' by Death From Above 1979).

What I'm clumsily trying to say is that here's a blog what I made whilst I should've been doing something better and that if you're reading it then you should be doing something better too. Also, the fact that you and I have the time and resources to respectively make and read this gumpf is why the World is so screwed.

Electric Cares?

Everyone should watch this film, everyone should take notice that the electric car was very nearly something that took off and that we're not talking about something from the 70s or 80s, this was all happening four or five years ago.

Who Killed the Electric Car?

One of the things that struck me most about the film was the way that people thought that the Electric Car's limited range was a huge problem. People were actually saying this with a straight face. EVERY CAR HAS A LIMITED RANGE!!! Your petrol tank can only be filled so much and when it runs out you need to go to a petrol station. Ed Begley Jr. put it well when he said that "The Electric Car is not for everyone, given the limited range it can only meet the needs of 90% of the population!" Everyone should know that the electric car is not a joke, it's not something that is on the horizon... it exists now and whilst ethanol and hydrogen are years off and have huge problems, electricity comes out of everyone's wall right now!
