I Killed The Electric Car

Solo ora scopro questo bellissimo pezzo sull’Huffington Post.

Non ne faccio il riassunto per non rovinare la fine (comunque prevedibile da metà pezzo).

So, I don’t own an electric car. I own an SUV. And six months ago, my family and I decided it was time to get rid of it. So we went searching (…)

So why do I think I killed the electric car? Because, back in 1979 I got it. I knew what I needed to do.

I was 17 years old, and there was no talk of Global Warming. It just made sense, cars were going to hurt the planet. And I wanted to buy one that didn’t burn fossil fuel. I ignored my EVN subscription and my gut.

Years later I could have invested in a company that was building them (or investigating battery technology). I could have bought stock. I could have made a film. I could have gone ‘car free’ when I moved to a city with great public transportation more than 10 years ago.

I didn’t do any of those things.
