KCRW in Santa Monica has a program that was talking about the auto industry the other day. ("To the point". Warren Olney, host) One of his guests, an auto industry analyst, predicted 150 mpg plug-in hybrids in the near future. To me it sounds over-optimistic. But if true it could make our revolution fizzle. That would be kinda sad. But those would be great cars. I guess they'd probably be expensive, too. Starting out anyway. So maybe even if this is possible, we'll still see fewer autos and more scooters, motor assisted bicycles, etc. I guess that wouldn't be a bad compromise.
