The actual truth is that trains powered by diesel fuel haul alot of tonnage per gallon. Oh well, the bright side is a solar power can't run at night and folks won't be awoken as the engineer blows the whistle before each crossing.

Once upon a time there was a long train that needed to climb a very tall mountain. But it was missing an engine.

The first engine said to the train, I can help you climb the mountain. My coal powered engine is very strong and powerful!

No thanks, the train said. Your steam clogs up the environment.

The second engine said to the train, I can help you climb the mountain. My electric powered engine is very fast and smooth!

No thanks, the train said. Too many problems during a power outage.

The third engine said to the train, I can help you climb the mountain. My diesel powered engine is very new and reliable!

No thanks, the train said. Im into alternative energy.

I can help you, the fourth engine said. I work from solar energy.

The other engines laughed, Ha! A solar powered engine?

Youre too small to pull that train over the mountain. Itll never work!

But the fourth engine didnt listen to them, and connected itself to the train. It felt the warmth of the sun and began to chug and chug and chug up mountain. I know I can, I know I can, I know I can...

It chugged harder and harder until it reached the very top of the mountain. "Let's go for it!" the train said. And the solar engine zoomed down the other side.

Once they reached the bottom, all the other engines came over to say they were sorry for doubting the little solar powered engine.

Years later, when all the oil and coal was extracted from Earth, and electrical power had faded, all the trains were still able to run because they had switched to solar powered engines! Everyone applauded the foresight of the original solar powered engine, and they all lived happily ever after.

The end.

Oh come on, Ma.

What? Didnt you like the story?

Yeah, but that was blatant preaching. You dont need to hit me over the head with the message like that

Given a choice, voters in the majority of states have reaffirm The Defense of Marriage Act, each and every time. It was wrong for judges and politicians to enact legal policies that are typically not honored in the majority of states. To be clear to the 'No H8' crowd, many Americans will never except an 'Adam and Steve' union as equal to a traditional marriage. It ain't hatery, they are just living their values.

Back to the Future Indeed: Electric DeLorean DMC-12 in the Works

reborn DeLorean Motor Co. announced Friday that an electric DeLorean was in the works for 2013. And not "electric" as in "exciting" -- though it could be that, too -- but as in actually electric: Texas-based DMC will partner with start-up Epic EV to produce an electric vehicle that reportedly will achieve 125 mph from 260 horsepower -- and cost anywhere from $90,000 to $100,000.

A prototype electric DeLorean was unveiled in a surprise move during the DMC Texas Open House for DeLorean owners at the company's headquarters in Humble, Texas. DMC owner Stephen Wynne said that the new vehicle represents "major leaps forward" and that "as far as substantial updates go, it's been 30 years."

Yes, we noticed.

DMC-released specs are included after the jump.

The adminstration rolls the dices again and again, the taxpayers may lose a half billion on the rush to green jobs. Speaking of Sheriff Joe, who bragged these electric 'jokes' would be made in DE, Andre Harper was on yesterday The Dana Show and they discussed the VP claim rape was up in Flint, MI. Andre kept making the comment Joe experience on the subject came from a 300 lb. guy behind him. ;) It's out today that while there are more murders in Flint, reported rapes are down.

Alfie and Billie are rolling in their graves, based on what the buffoon, the union and current GM management have done to a once great company. It was once said, "As GM goes, so goes the nation," means we have fools both leading GM and this nation.

APNewsBreak: GM willing to buy back Volts

Akerson said that if necessary, GM will recall the more than 6,000 Volts now on the road in the U.S. and repair them once the company and federal safety regulators figure out what caused the fires.

And gearheads gasped and rolled their eyes when the old Chrysler hyped and sold to the public the 'new' hemi engine and jacked the price of the ride by a few thousands. Look for a NASCAR version of the new Dodge Dart, except the drivetrain won't be the work of Fiat.

Yes, left up to the kooks and nuts, soon you and your date can take a romantic ride around NYC in an electric vehicle. IMHO, give clueless and useless libs half a chance and forget visiting a zoo, an aquarium and forget outdoor cooking, given you can't barbeque or deep fry tofu. After all non-PC traditions are banned in NYC and the rich are taxed to high heavens, one won't be able to tell the difference between Calcutta and the Big Apple.

Last night on Fox News, someone made the comment that set aside spaces in NYC for electric cars are always empty.

Living on a quarter acre lot in a single family house ain't what the Germans do. Whether it's a city/town or a village, dwellings are close together and even parking is at a premium. While a vehicle that can follow the mailman is neat, safety issue might not let that fly, I meant drive.
