Starting in 2011, the British government will offer £5,000 to citizens as an incentive to buy electric cars. The British TV report we’ve embedded makes it clear at the end of its broadcast that Britain has targeted one particular technology, electricity, to place its bets for a cleaner future. It believes that electric cars are its ticket to ensure that Britain will lead a “green motoring revolution.” Clearly, announcements like this prove our global society is embracing new ideas and tackling challenges. We agree that no one technology can provide all the answers, but we’re clearly taking a step in the right direction when we see news like this.
You go Britain. We’ll be watching!
