Please don't build electric cars. If electric cars require recharging from your home, the additional demand will cause the cost of electricity to skyrocket. In our present state of electrical supply, there are brownouts, blackouts and barely enough electricity to cook our foods, light our homes and cool our bodies.

If electric cars become the solution to the oil problem, we may have to give up a lot of good parts of the good life just to be able to drive to work. Then again we may feel good to use $5-a-gallon gas to run the generator so we can have toast and coffee as we recharge our car.
