This is no "plant" subject, but...
The Californian Government has issued a mandate to the effect that 10% of
vehicules sold by the year 2000 must be _zero-emission_ vehicules. Now,
electric cars are the way this goal will be achieved on such short notice,
but there are other zero-emission engines (the hydrogen-powered rotary engine
shown by Mazda at the 1991 Tokyo Auto Show comes to mind).
Besides, IMHO, California is just moving the problem outside its
state's borders, so other states and countries should follow-up to that
legislation and promote cleaner-burning fuel (at least). Let's face it:
I hate to say it (I ride a bicycle :-) the automobile is here to stay.
