Make alternative energy distributed systems about the bucks...then 1 man 1 horse starts to be a feasible solution to some of the myriad of problems inherent in the "electric vehicle as a universal solution to the energy transport" concept.

Curt, this is true as long as cars insist on having 200 to 300 horses in front of it.  There was a time when a man was lucky to have one.  Four or six to pull a carriage was considered royalty (or a stage coach perhaps), but you see my point.  Wall St. with its The Bigger The Better brainwashing is destroying our world.  Our greed for more power than the next guy is not our best approach to transportation - or anything else for that matter.   What's the point of an EV saving the planet if it still needs to consume way more energy that it takes to move one or two human bodies?  How often do you tow tons of goods?  And couldn't you rent an ICE on those occations?  You guys are not much of a solution.  Your only changing the nature of the problem.  Sure, there may be less gases emmitted, but, well, I'm sure you have all heard the arguments about the trade offs and power souces and pollution from other materials, blah, blah, blah.  But yes, Curt,
 as long as we are hedonistically inclined to grasp and cling to our 250 horses, or act like a spoiled child, then solar will never supply the energy.  Your right.    Jon Youngbloodjonyou at clear.net    I kinda have to disagree -- the amount of energy it takes to run a car is so much ridiculously more than any reasonably sized solar array could ever provide..   Curt EricksonLurkin'    > One more advantage of the EV over the ICE.
