Why you should care

Because why worry when you can panic?

Electric vehicles. They’re nonpolluting. They’re cute. They’re whisper-quiet, due, in large part, to no internal combustion engines. And because they are whisper-quiet, absolutely no one will hear them sneaking up on us, early-stage harbingers of the doom foretold by Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator way back when.

When? When we woke up and discovered electric-vehicle charging stations just about everywhere. Like communists in the ’50s. Is the sky falling? Are we early-stage alarmists? Or are we really just, um, prophets?

You, the unsuspecting, be the judge.
