Add ImageAn important and deadly contributor to climate change due to global warming is the vast quantity of pollution pumped into the atmosphere by automobiles that depend upon fossil fuels. There is a growing number of manufacturers who have deveoped non-polluting electric cars with zero emissions. These photos were made last Friday of exhibits at the Academy of Sciences in San Francisco.

Perfect choice for the Z word. Its a great goal....zero emissions.

Great post.

They're a very good idea especially for city driving and seem to be catching on in London where you get discounted parking and there are charging points for them. They also are cheap taxwise here where our road tax is based on fuel emissions.

Some 4 seaters are being developed but I suppose we'll have to wait until the charging points are available everywhere.

Very clever choice foe "Z"
I would buy a zero emission car if the price was right and it ran as well as other cars.

It's a great idea and I hope we build more, but we're so behind the curve on upgrading the electrical grid to that we have to do both in synch or we won't be able to charge the cars without creating blackouts. It's insane that as a society we've painted ourselves almost into a corner. We're so much smarter than that!

My ideal is an electric car in every garage and a solar array on the roof to supply the electricity. Is this a pipe dream?

Maggie May said...

That is a great choice for Z.
These are the types of car that should be manufactured in vast quantity in the future!

Understanding Alice, I would love to be a part of your new blog. I went to the site and read your excellent description of what you intend. I saw no way in which to reply to it on that site. How do I become part of it?

Lena said...

Absolutely agree with the others! A perfect scenario for the future.
