So, it's 2018, and Wired, a supposedly "progressive" media outlet with supposed expertise in new technologies just published an anti-electric car article with a telling headline, 'The potential pitfalls of electric cars, in 5 charts,' that, surprise, surprise -- NOT!, recirculates the same old arguments about electric cars allegedly being "just as dirty" as gasoline cars.
So, about four months ago I turned in a 2014 Nissan LEAF I had been leasing for three and a half years and started a new three-year lease on a Chevy Bolt. It’s been a great decision for me, especially since I am in a post-divorce, one-car household.
So, I have a friend from my Unitarian Universalist church who I managed to persuade to buy a Chevy Bolt, Deena R.
It's fun being an earlier adopter of electric cars. I'm not as early an adopter as some electric car enthusiasts, but, having driven an all-electric car for almost four years now, I'm definitely mostly at the forefront off the EV revolution.
It's truly amazing how little most people in the United States know about electric cars.
I wish that not all CCS/Level 3/"Fast" electric vehicle chargers were in metro areas, especially out here in the American West. I just decided not to drive my Chevy Bolt from Denver to my sister's in Goleta, Calif. (1,200 miles one way) for Christmas because there is not a SINGLE CCS charger along I-70/I-15 between Denver and Fillmore, Utah, 511 miles west of Denver.
