California Paves the Road for Federal Adoption of Zero-Emission Vehicle Standards

U.S. Senators Jeff Merkley (D-OR) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) proposed legislation that would put the whole county on a coordinated path toward 100% zero emission vehicles. On November 28, 2018, the pair introduced a bill to the 115th Congress to amend the Clean Air Act to create a nation zero-emission vehicle standard. The Zero-Emission Vehicles Act (ZEVA) would set a comprehensive federal ZEV standard and require at least 50% of all new car sales in America be zero-emission vehicles by 2030.

When the electric vehicle revolution renders Atlantic oil drilling obsolete, it won’t be possible to take back the damage done to our beloved coast.

The Electric Car that Climbed Mt. Washington

To celebrate National Drive Electric week, September 8 – 16, 2018, I decided to experiment with driving my electric vehicle (EV) from Marshall, NC to Mt Washington, NH.  Although a veteran to long distance trips in a conventional gas-mobile, I was a little daunted about taking my new 2018 Chevy Bolt.  But I love visiting the country by car so I had to get into my EV saddle sooner or later, no better time to begin than during a nationally recognized week.  Locally I was consistently getting greater than 250 miles estimated driving range on a full battery charge, but a 1,200 mile trip would necessitate careful planning to maximize my time efficiency, minimize my cost and not stretch my wits too thin.
