Everyone can profit greenly

We’ve all gotta get from point A to point B. Travel takes up a good portion of our lives, whether it’s commuting work, going to the store, or on a longer vacation. Choosing more efficient ways to travel and better destinations will help you profit greenly.

Road Damage Fees and Profit

Been on a road lately and noticed how absolutely busted it was? Have you also noticed how vehicles today are far larger than in the past? These two things go together because vehicle weight is the main factor that determines road damage. State legislatures across the country are ignoring this simple fact and instead trying to blame EVs or even bicycles for our crumbling roads. The smarter/fairer way to fix our roads is by switching to a fee based on the actual road damage that vehicles cause. Replacing gas taxes and EV road fees with this would lead to a fairer and better system. Drivers who are currently freeloading off our system will pay more, but the rest of us will profit and the world will become greener. Read on to find out how it could all work.

I’ve been haranguing my mom into buying an electric car for years now. The other day she had a Zoom with some friends and shared a bit of what she’d learned, they were incredulous. This drove home just how little the general public really knows about EVs these days. This isn’t really their fault. People are busy, progress has been super fast, and oil related companies spend millions on huge misinformation campaigns to keep us burning gas.

After months of driving my new EV, I can clearly say that if you’re buying a new car it should be an electric car.

1,000+ MPGe eBike to Profit

We’re in the midst of a quiet transportation revolution right now. Recent advances in electric motors and batteries have made electric cars a reality and they’re getting cheaper and better every day. A lot of people have noticed this, but electric bicycles (eBikes) haven’t gotten nearly as much attention. These machines are so efficient they can have lower emissions per mile than walking or pedaling a regular bike. Back to the Future II promised us hoverboards by 2015.

Cars are one of the major sources of pollution in the world and a huge drag on people’s wallets. Right now we’re at the start of a massive shift in car technology.
