I've been very inspired by Barack Obama's message of hope and change. Among the many things that inspires me about Obama are his aggressive and badly needed environment goals. Here's a good article detailing some of what the next President hopes to achieve.
Wow - cute, fast, affordable and now with an all-electric engine. Kudos to BMW for taking a lead to turn apply this technology to the Mini. And boo to Detroit for dragging their feet again. Didn't our good friends at GM have an electric car, the EV1, in 1996 that they killed a few short years later? It makes me kinda sad to think that if the R&D $$$ spent on making the Escalade look pretty and the Cavalier look ugly were applied to making zero-emissions engines, Detroit would be in better shape today. I digress... congrats to BMW and I can't wait to see electric Minis darting around city streets.

Phrases like “save the planet” or “save the environment” don’t make much sense. The planet and the environment were here long before us, and will continue to be here long after us in some form, regardless of what we do or how we shape it. The earth doesn’t need to be saved. what we really mean is that we want to save ourselves and keep the environment tolerable (and even suitable) for us to live in.
