Green Drive Expo
The keynote speaker at the Green Drive Expo in Richmond, CA this past weekend was Lisa Margonelli, who posed a difficult question: "Can Your Car Change The World?" The "your car" here meant plug-in vehicles, and Margonelli's short answer is yes, they already have – but there is so very much more to do.
In modern history, it is all too rare that a progressive activist is able to achieve his or her goals (just read A People's History if you doubt this). Felix Kramer – a name that should be familiar to many regular AutoblogGreen readers – is at that stage, though, and he took a moment to celebrate the arrival of actual, OEM production plug-in vehicles at the beginning of his speech at the Green Drive Expo in Richmond, CA this past weekend.
California green car fans are getting a double-dose of expo goodness this month. Last weekend was the AltCar Expo in Santa Monica (we'll have more on this later today) and this coming Saturday is the Green Drive Expo at the Craneway Pavilion in Richmond, CA. The expo features ride and drives, green car discussions and more – see the full schedule here.
