One really good battery could do all that and much more. Stay tuned......
Sounds like one of those things that might be painful at first, but in the long run, much better for the world.
The gas, oil and utility, as well as the car companies have put the thumb screws to all of us anyway. They make life hard for those who barely make ends meet. Up here in the frozen north, our utility bills have nearly doubled this winter over last year. We're hit with gas prices, gasline prices, car prices and auto insurance that are more than through the roof.
Did anyone see the news item about the class of underprivileged teens who built a car that gets over 50 miles per gallon and runs on soybean oil fuel? The teacher said that none of them, him included, were geniuses and that if they could build a car like that, why couldn't the auto industry? The students agreed that it is the greed of the oil and petroleum and auto industries that prevent us from afforbable and wise solutions to the fake energy crisis.
Today it was announced on TV that the US soldier death toll in Iraq is up to 2300. Add the civilians, other countries' soldiers, etc. All dead due to the greed of the oil and petroleum industry. It might just be worth temporary pain to get these evil, greedy bastards off their literally bloody throne.
