12. So we shoot for conservation AND clean energy.
Edited on Fri Mar-31-06 07:53 PM by silverweb
Not all electricity is produced by burning oil. Not by a long shot. And every single vehicle that runs on something other than oil-based fuel is a plus.

More and more electricity is being produced by clean, renewable means and it's up to us to push for much more of that. Energy conservation and clean production are not mutually exclusive.

My personal dream is to have one of these on my roof to power my personal energy usage and an Air Car. I've already switched over 80% of my household lightbulbs to these and conserve as much as I can in other ways.

So... tell me again, please:

(1) How is the Air Car, which is recharged with electricity generated in a variety of ways and actually cleans the air it puts back into the atmosphere -- not a good thing?

(2) And how is bashing the Air Car because it needs some form of electricity to charge it going to help move us towards a cleaner, renewable energy future?
