Well there I was, just Google-ing around and I spot this URL; “electric-cars-are-for-girls.com” and in my usual hyper-sensitive-defensive-mode I think, why would somebody go to the trouble of registering this URL, just to deride electric cars?
Curiosity got the better of me and one click later I was smiling, not frowning.
Lynne Mason from Seattle really likes electric cars, the planet and in particular her son Gavin, so she’s put together this great website in an effort to help all three, in a…dare I say it…girlie type way!
Speaking of the planet, did you notice over the last couple of weeks a couple of big things have happened in the world with regard to climate change;
- Firstly the Supreme Court in the U.S. ruled that greenhouse gases are pollutants and therefore can be regulated by the federal government. This will have a huge impact on making the world greatest emitter more accountable.
- Then the IPCC released a very sobering, more detailed account of what they consider are the greatest risks of climate change so that policy makers have something to work with over the next few years. I suspect that this assessment, from a few hundred scientists no less, has all but killed off, the last of the professional denialists.
