We have all hairy moments in our youth. After my spell on a sailing ship, I hadn't got rid of my urge for adventure so became an environmental activist. While I no longer dodge police horses and attack dogs as part of everyday fun and games (you'll find me on my bike or canoe) I am still firmly of the belief that we need to dial our lifestyles back in order for the world and its residents to be able to live in harmony.
E-vehicles are part of that. I believe that there is a great industry to be hand in low impact alternative fuels that can enable us to live a similar lifestyle to today but with less impact than today. Could it be 100% sustainable? That is for debate. Can it reduce our demands on resources? Certainly.
