Reduce Fossil Fuel Use.

By: Al Pugsley

  Al Pugsley explains how his car works.

For Americans to become energy efficient, we must join together to break our addiction to coal, oil and natural gas.

One way is to switch our transportation to electricity. You can buy an electric car in Kansas City today. Another way is to buy a plug-in hybrid or hybrid.  

I think the auto industry does us a disservice to advertise their cars and trucks by telling the public only the highway mileage rating. For best comparison, we need to know the city mileage as well, because hybrids, unlike standard cars, get the best mileage in city driving.
Al Pugsley is a long-time member of Presbyterians for Earth Care and is active at Village Presbyterian Church in Prairie Village, KS. His story about how he came to care about electric cars was recently featured in The Oklahoman's NewsOK blog, and you can read it here.
