    Shoooot.... when I was a kid, there would've been a bunch of furniture in the back o' the pickup and the order would've been "Hang on to that stuff and DON'T let anything bounce out!  And make DAMNED sure the mirror on the back o' that dresser don't get busted!!"   :o

    The state's been pushing hard for years to develop the electric car market, with all sorts of incentives to manufacture, sell, buy and use 'em.  Hell... a few years ago, when he was Attorney General, Jerry Brown was pushing for electric bulldozers for road construction.  


    But you're right - almost one third of the electricity used in California is imported from other states.  We cannot build nukes, we cannot build dams for hydroelectric, coal is outlawed... that doesn't leave much.  Natural gas, wind, and solar.  


    Also note that the state is attempting to build a "high speed railway system."  The plan is for the thing to be powered by electricity.  How to pay for it?  I suspect by increasing the already absurdly high taxes on motor vehicles and fuel.


    Oh - and Gov Gav's requirement that all new housing must be constructed with solar generating systems.  


    I liked what my old pard Palouse once said, many years ago:  "If those people were serious they'd be eating boiled lawn clippings and only wearing clothes woven from their own hair!"
