1st Epic EV Torq Goes To Ex-Tesla Exec

It seems that the Torq is something between a practical electric car and a toy. It’s certainly one of the coolest 3-wheelers I’ve ever seen. Naturally, the unique EV has Tesla connections — as the title notes, the first one has now been delivered to an ex-Tesla executive. Interestingly, this former exec didn’t leave on the best of terms. “The very first Torq Roadster was delivered for former Tesla exec David Vespremi, who just won … Read More

All-Electric Ford Fiesta With Rear-Wheel Drive

German company Schaeffler may have an EV solution some of you will like. From Gas2: “A German company has converted a Ford Fiesta into an all-electric, rear-wheel drive vehicle using wheel hub motors, changing the driving dynamics of this popular commuter car.

European Parliament Decision On ETS

This post first appeared on Lenz Blog The European Parliament decided on Tuesday against a proposal to increase prices for carbon permits under the European Emission Trade System. German Economy Minister Rösler is happy about that decision, which proves conclusively that it is wrong. It also proves that the world will perish if the FDP gets over 5% of the vote in the upcoming elections in Germany. They need to be defeated decisively if humanity wants any hope of … Read More

Carbon Bubble: $6 Trillion Of New Investments At Risk

This article first appeared on RenewEconomy Call it an act of the greatest folly, or simply one of greed. But it seems that the world's energy companies are hell-bent on spending up to $6 trillion of shareholder funds and bank debt in the next decade on fossil fuel investments – assets that could well become stranded and worthless if the world acts to limit climate change. This is the conclusion of a new report on … Read More
