Peter Mansbridge and the CBC Newsworld's crew has been airing, nightly, devastating stories of the effects of climate change around the world. It pains me to watch this. Have you seen it?
This show compels me and my informal group of electronic hobbyists to put in an effort to put five electric vehicles, running from Revived Batteries (taken from a scrap pile, thereby reducing pollution at the same time) on Vancouver's roads.
We already have three battery breakthroughs in our electric pickup truck, which you can check out in the EV Album webpages. It is the first battery vehicle with a per-mile cost that is a fraction of the cost of gasoline.
However, we need more 'nearly- free-energy' cars/trucks on the road. Five such vehicles should inspire people everywhere, that they are not helpless, either.
Let's do it now. Yesterday.
However, we're just hobbyists, and are clueless about raising funds. We need help here.
Is there anything you can do?

P.S. Have you read the new book, "Lives Per Gallon"?
