The average car on the road right now is about 11 years old, that translates to 120,00 or more miles for most people. True that a well cared for car should last much longer than that, but if you are in the market for a new car and are lucky enough to be able to afford considering one,
please consider an electric car.
Driving an electric car and never ever buying gasoline again is an Occupy Tactic that reduces your own fossil fuel consumption to the percentage that your local utility uses to generate electricity.
Naturally pressuring your local utility to replace it's fossil fuel sources
with renewables is another tactic.
Reducing you own fossil fuel footprint is a tactic that will make it easier to withdraw our troops from other countries and prevent environmental damage here at home by reducing the demand for drilling and natural gas fracking in the U.S. and Canada.
Another upside to boycotting fossil fuels with your own personal choices is that it reduces the strangle hold that current politicians have on our economy and reduces their power in government because the profits they enjoy with fossil fuel partnerships are less lucrative.
Many people boycott the fossil fuel industry and live green by riding bicycles and using public transportation. Electric Cars will make driving cool again.
This is sorta related, I was just thinking that Subaru has replaced Volkswagon as the Vehicle of choice of the Granola Generation. Subara exploits this in all their TV adds with their all wheel drive models taking people into the heart of nature to camp, hike, mountain bike and ski, so why is it that Subaru has never marketed an EV, in fact they don't even have an EV Concept Car?
