Video of the Day: The Real-Life Daily Horror Flick

By Debbie Schlussel
I love this video, but I hope their idea of “fighting back” is not the Jimmuh Carter bicycle solution. Try riding that in a suit to work for thirty miles on a 90-degree summer day or on a 9-degree winter day in the sleet. Nuh-uh.
My solution is making THIS affordable to the masses. 220 miles per charge, less than 2 cents per mile, and 0 to 60 in 3.9 seconds, baby!

Great video and great solution–you probably need a mortgage to buy a TESSLA though. The thing is, if they can build it in mass production from there–with the kind of prices we are getting nailed on for fuel–some Henry Ford types (probably in India or Israel–perhaps elsewhere) will figure out how to provide the same technology on all sorts of vehicles.
If that kind of power and efficiency is going to be available soon–then maybe this fuel crisis has a silver lining after all. I have always heard that in the past, big money corporate interests have gobbled up the alternative sources of new technologies before they really had a chance to fly by writing a check so they could own such solutions–so they could never reach the public. This time, with us now buying fuel in the trillions of dollars a year–it will be pretty impossible to stop this technology. Bravo Tessla!

If I bought one of those Tesla’s I’d have to live in it. Maybe Obama can get me a great rate on a loan.

A Tesla may sound cool, but at $109,000.00 a pop I can wait a loooooooooong time for the price to come down.
That notwithstanding, the energy has to come from somewhere. E-cars simply shift the load from gasoline to the electric power grid, which is already heavily loaded. 250 million cars (in the US) suck up a lot of energy, chemical or electrical. We would need many more electrical power generating plants to handle the new loading. Those plants would eat either coal or uranium. Pick your poison ’cause there’s no free lunch.
[TJ: THAT’S WHY I SAID IT NEEDS TO BE MADE MORE ECONOMICALLY FOR THE MASSES. AND, YES, ULTIMATELY, WE WILL HAVE A POWER SHORTAGE AT THE BEGINNING AND NEED TO GENERATE MORE ENERGY. BUT COAL IS FAR EASIER TO OBTAIN FROM OURSELVES AND OUR ALLIES THAN OIL, GIVEN THE DRILLING CONSTRAINTS ON ANWR AND OFFSHORE DRILLING, CURRENTLY. DS]
