The past few weeks have seen the realization of a dream long-held by many: several major car companies started to deliver — into dealership and garages — production plug-in vehicles. Count it as a milestone advacne in the fight against climate change…but as a part of the celebration, it’s useful to remember that this change didn’t just happen on its own. That it is happening now is due to the work of tireless advocates and enthusiasts from around the world. Felix Kramer’s recount of CalCar’s efforts in the battle are a good reminder of how change begins with a dream, and succeeds with persistence and hard work. It is very much worth a read.
