Hybrid, Electric or a Mixture of both!! Barack Obama?

How many times have we heard about Hybrid Cars and the importance they have on our environment, does anyone truly know what Hybrid even means though? Definitions of Hybrid car on the Hybrid Car Information and Resources site: "A hybrid car, also known as an HEV or hybrid electric vehicle, is an automobile that is powered by two sources; an internal combustion engine, and an electric motor. Hybrid cars have no use for plugs, as they are amply charged by the movement of the wheels, and storing the kinetic energy that is generated through a process called regenerative braking. Hybrid cars have many environmental benefits (see Emissions and Pollution,) and economical benefits (see Facts, Why Buy a Hybrid, and Tax Breaks and Rebates.)" Ev World has a ton of information on both electric and hybrid electric vehicles. It is rated as one of the best places to obtain and read up on electric vehicle news. http://www.evworld.com/index.cfm

Has anyone seen the documentary "who killed the electric car" fascinating film and it truly demonstrates how the government killed this design due to them not being able to make money off the concept. Years later the same way of green travel was recreated however in a fashion so that the Government and large Corporations could make some money. Recreating this resource has made everyone happy even the Government and if they are happy everyone is happy! This is a very powerful technology that is going to change our planet immensely! Look Obama is already jumping on the band wagon! "March 19, 2009 When President Barack Obama walked into Southern California Edison’s electric-vehicle test facility here today, he visited what may be the highest concentration of electric vehicles in North America. The president’s goal, says White House spokesman Robert Gibbs, was to highlight the role of plug-in cars in creating “clean energy jobs” that will spur economic growth." This electric car movement has been an ongoing battle for years however their persistence and drive to make our environment cleaner is paying off. “These cars of tomorrow require the batteries of tomorrow, I am announcing that the Department of Energy is launching a $2 billion competitive grant program under the Recovery Act that will spark the manufacturing of the batteries and parts that run these cars, build or upgrade the factories that will produce them, and in the process, create thousands of jobs right here in America. Show us that your idea or your company is best-suited to meet America’s challenges, and we will give you a chance to prove it. ”

This should be an influential story to all of us trying to make a different; persistence and small steps do pay off in the end. So don't give up fighting!!

Hybrid Car Facts
"Hybrid cars like the Toyota Prius produce 90% less pollutants than comparable non-hybrid cars. By putting less harmful chemicals in the environment, the harmful effects of pollution can be halted or even reversed."

We might seem small and our actions might even seem smaller, but that one movement and change in the way you think helped create this electric car phenomena! Without you this green movement would not be possible and the demand for a cleaner greener environment would not be influencing Corporate America and the Government to make a change to the production of what goes on within this planet.

Stay Green!
Until next time,
