    Burning gasoline in a large-scale plant is actually more efficient than burning it in a million tiny plants. But it's not like that's the only source of energy even now. A majority of the power where I live comes from hydroelectric sources.

    Undoubtedly we will need more power plants, to be sure. But that is the beauty of an electric vehicle: it can be powered by almost any source of energy which is produced in a more controlled fashion. We could continue to use petrol, or we could use anything else we chose.

    But we WOULD have a choice that we do not have now.

    More windmills and solar cells. What will the environmentalists have to say about that when we start defacing the desert with those abominations? Think about high your electric bill will be providing of course we have enough. Remember shortages mean higher prices (supply and demand?) Good luck to you

  • Wind, solar, geothermal, magnetohydrodynamics, all come to mind.

    If you want to stick with fossil fuels, coal gasification would be both clean and economical at today's natural gas and oil prices. And don't forget natural gas -- we have at least 500 years worth currently on tap and maybe another 2,000 years worth of known, accessible reserves on shore and huge amounts offshore, especially off the Carolinas.

    Coal and nuclear and oil are out due to the Dems environmental wing, and ethanol has been a joke, so I guess we'll need lots and lots of windmills.
