It will take years (a decade) to unravel that mindset and get them off the road now. We need a carbon tax to begin gently phasing in now. To support research into Gen4 nuclear. The world currently uses 70Twh of electricity /day. You have to store at least a day at grid scale You think your going to build enough storage to make Solar take the place of giant GW scale coal plants?
If I want to drive a Leaf ( we had one untill a stoner rear ended it ) , that is my business .

If I want to drive a pick up truck , that is my business .

And what about the freight industry ? I can just see the freight industry trying to deliver the ma moth amount of freight provided inn this country , in a fleet of PRIUS'es . What would that do to traffic congestion ?

What planet / reality do you live in ?
