plug logo - basic (print resolution)“Forget the environment for a moment, forget our troops fighting to secure the precious oil that so many burn so frivolously, and consider that you might like an electric car just because… It’s a better car.”

I’m no longer a climate skeptic; it looks like the last 100 years is taking its toll on the world with record levels of CO2 in the atmosphere. Living a lower carbon (and other pollutants) life is satisfying. I expect to damage the earth a little with my presence but, I hope that it’s a small enough dent that the natural forces of equilibrium can take care of it – like a sand castle on the beech, I hope that my impact will be washed away.
