In times past…

In times past as we were growing up it seems we didn’t have
a worry in the World. Our days were planned for our growing

One day we found ourselves in a whole new world of decisions
for our lives. We shape our lives by what we were taught by
those who came before.

Todays young people are needing guidance for their future, as
we needed the same guidance form those who came before us.

We traded carriages for cars

“You know horses are smarter than people. You never heard
of a horse going broke betting on people.” — Will Rogers”

“The shift from horses to cars was actually a 50-year period
of change and transformation complete with large safety,
environmental and economic challenges, not unlike today.”

Environmental concerns were very evident back in the 19th
century, (what to do with manure of the horses) all which
created health concerns, not unlike the same concerns today
in the 21st century, (pollutants from the automobile which
was first introduced in Europe in the late 1800s.

With the advent of the Automobile came the need for Gas
Stations which brought the need for more oil production to
run that automobile.

In 1907 there were 140,300 cars registered in the U.S. and a
paltry 2,900 trucks.

Transitioning from Gas to Electric Vehicles

As we look into the future we see the advent of the electric
automobile which will create the need of charging stations
across the World.

A Brief History of the Electric Car: Trials and Triumphs

When was the first electric car made? 1960? 2000?

Try 1835—maybe even a few years earlier. No one person can
be given credit for the development of the electric vehicle,
as the dates of some of the earliest developments are
unclear. But contrary to many people’s assumptions, electric
vehicles have a longer history than cars with internal
combustion engines.

  1. In a time where climate control confuses and scares us all at the same time,
    the advent of the electric car should be welcomed. The loss employment from
    creating regular cars would easily be applied by skilled workmen and women
    ready to build the electric cars.

    In 1835, Thomas Davenport, a blacksmith from Brandon, Vermont, built a small-scale electric car.
    Elon Must of Tesla is the biggest builder of electric cars. With a bank account of $54B I doubt he will have financial issues building them.

  2. The future of electric card or even hybrid cars will be interesting. Some of the people that I used to work with have gotten hybrid cars. They are both gas and electric and the people love them. So now we can see what the future will bring in the automobile industry.

  3. The advent of electric cars in mass production is expected in 2025. This date was made feasible by the invention of a battery that can power the car for 600+ miles and be recharged in 3-5 minutes.
    However, we will need a huge network of charging stations for this to become a reality.
    Hopefully, nations and corporations will make that happen, soon.
