Classic Porsche leaves you feeling all-electric inside

With the debate still racing (ohhhh metaphors, how I love thee!) over the real carbon-saving costs of the Prius, along comes a group of environmentalists in California who are converting classic cars into all-electric cars. It’s a move brimming with both nostalgia and frustration over car company’s neglect of offering a electric solution to consumers. This is where the Prius becomes a “gas guzzler”

Now, all I have to is convert ele’s 1967 Alfa Romeo to electric. But oh we will miss that Alfa noise!

    The Fastest Growing Industry on Earth as Archimedes would say the least, EUREKA it is exceedingly colossal.

    The day is coming that most all on Earth will use Solar Energy.
    Most will have PV Solar Panels on their roofs. The Free Energy from the Sun will be used to Make Electric.

    Soon it will be no more full it up at the pump $$$ Recharge free from the SUN.

    The surplus of Electric not used will then be used to split water into Hydrogen. The Hydrogen will be put into a tank like most farmer and people living out of town already have. This Hydrogen will power their stove to cook, car to drive and power generator to use as electric at night.

    Very soon the need for the Power Grid will be gone for most. As the great need for Oil will no longer be needed.

    There were 200 electric taxi cabs in New York City way before 200 gas Taxi cabs came into being there.

    Thomas Edison’s Interest in Renewable Energy is no big surprise, for it was his friend Albert Einstein that dreamed this dream, that the day will come that All On Earth Would Use Solar Energy for the GOOD OF ALL.

    Albert Einstein won the Nobel Prize for the 1921 year. For his work and time and efforts to freely show Governments and Universities around the World they could get Electric from the Sun Solar Energy Photovoltaics The Discovery of the Law of Physics call The PHOTOELECTRIC EFFECT.

    To this day we do not
    teach this to our young in schools.

    Have no worry Albert Einstein’s Dream is becoming real 100 years later.

    Archimedes another genius had this same dream 2,250 years ago. Very little is said in all our schools about these two and the work they did to show the world. The Free Energy all could get from the Sun in the Heavens above.

    These two Brilliant Mathematician and Scientist were always glad to teach all that had ears to hear.
    Archimedes and Albert Einstein two of the smartest men to ever live on Earth.

    The day will soon be when Hybrid and Electric cars will out number the ones that need Oil and gas.

    God Bless

    The day will come soon for many a car when the exteriors will be coated with Solar Cells and each wheel will have its own electric motor/ generator like dis brakes they will be able to replace them very easy. You will be able to upgrade the HP. Almost like changing a tire.
