Clean compromise....

The Wall Street Journal has an article about the compromises that are taking place in California to permit the creation of Plug-In Hybrids. There is a lot of alarm about the future out our planet, but unfortunately it's the human beings who need to change and we're notoriously good at dreaming of the ideal, but terrible about getting there. It's good to see that compromises are being made. It's the direction that's more important sometimes than the velocity. While we can't inch along, we can't expect huge jumps.

What's being missed in these conversations about transportation is real discussion about mass transit, new zoning laws, telecommuting models to alleviate automobiles as the standard for mobility. There I go again, slipped into the ideal. But it's a step toward the deeper questions.
