I Killed The Electric Car

aprile 3, 2009

Solo ora scopro questo bellissimo pezzo sull’Huffington Post.

Non ne faccio il riassunto per non rovinare la fine (comunque prevedibile da metĂ  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.
