We should be promoting alternative transit rather than just relying on electric cars.

This society has placed it's hope on the conversion to electric cars. That can be a step forward, but it's drawbacks are often pointed out.

Electric is much better than fossil fuel cars, but if electric cars aren't the saving grace, society has just been following another distraction. We really really need to do more to reduce automobile dependency altogether.

That means more public transit, walking, bicycling and changes in the way we plan the landscape.
