I thought I would start this thread after seeing BMW's latest scheme for powering their electric cars. They intend to have streetlights all over cities rigged with charging equipment. Some people may think this silly but it is a sign of how much our cities are gradually being adapted to accommodate these things. Electric cars take more time and expenditure to produce than normal cars, and ironically their production causes more carbon emissions too. Maybe seeking alternative fuel, not alternative power, is the way to go as some perfectly normal cars can run on vegetable oil and many electric cars are really expensive. Also I like the idea of biofuel flights which I believe have been undertaken by Thomson from BHX before.
