First of all, let me say that I would love to drive an electric car, but unfortunately they are too expensive at the moment. I read this article on takepart.com:
Amazing how fast it goes: it is written that there could be more electric vehicle charging stations than gas stations in the United Kingdom by 2020. If this information came from an environmental organization I would be skeptic about it, but it is NISSAN claiming this report! That makes it special in my opinion. Honestly, I don't hope it will take till 2020, the sooner the better. I live near a road and the fumes until today make me nauseous.
If add to that what I read about a year ago, that in the Netherlands there are experiments with plastic roads (?!) which are more environment friendly that is at least a little bit of good news.

I know a lot of people will be skeptical, but change and progress is a good thing. If it needs time, it needs time. But one day things will be different and I might breath fresher air while going home. Who knows?
