Its time to move beyond fossile fuels and get our country onto "future fuels!
Imagine if the computer never evolved beyond the vaccume tube!
- Government invcentive to no longer purchase fossile fuel cars: If the goverment made it cheaper to purchase an electric, hydrogen or LNG car, why would anyone want to purchase anything else?
- Government incentive to purchase future fuels: If the governement made it cheaper to purchase electricity, hydrogen or LNG to power our cars, why woudl anyone want to purchase anything else?
That's it, plain and simple!
Who is going to pay for this?
Well ask who will pay if we don't and who is paying for the Iraq war?
Its time we focus on saving ourselves, saving our country rather than taking over another country or the world.
The world hates us for invading IraQ and taking over another country, the world would love us if we implemented a solution to make the world a cleaner place, and provided the technology to do so.
What kind of incentive?
- Future Fuel Cars for less than $10K $5K would be even better
- Future Fuels: the equivalent of $1/gal or less
If this means giving a $10K or $20K tax break to those who purchase a future fuel car, then so be it. if this means discounting the cost of LNG, electricity or hydrogen by 50% or more, then so be it.
If we don't do it, we will all be paying an extra $10K or more to foreign countries just to drive our car to work, so we can pay more taxes to a government that is not helping us.
After we have converted over to future fuels cars, then we can let the market decide on the price for a car, or the price for fuel. As it is now, we don't have time to wait, we don't have time for car makers to decide when the time is right, and we cannot afford another year of doing nothing.
We can invade Iraq and claim to win a war in a few days, why can't we save ourselves in a year?
We can send a man to the moon, but we can't afford to drive our cars to work or the grocery store any more!
For me personally, I WILL NOT purchase another fossile fuel car again.
Hear me car makers, if you want my next car dollar, produce an affordable future fuel car, or you won't get my money! (And by the way, the Chevy Volt, with its $30K or 40K price tag will not get my next car dollar.)
