Lubbock makes another green list, %$#@! (Minipost)

This one is a list of places where it's great to own an electric car. Once, again, I clicked on the article expecting to see Lubbock nowhere in sight, but there it was toward the bottom of the page.

10 Best Cities in the U.S. to Own an Electric Car

Sure enough, the author also included the five worst cities in which to own own an electric vehicle, and there we are at number 4, snagit all to Midland!

Of course, I do choose to live in a town that actively discourages renewable energy, offers decreasing levels of recycling, has only one semi-public charging station (at the Nissan dealership), and has a mayor who considers cycling to be a niche issue, so this should come as no surprise.

Keith, I may need a sustainably brewed beer. (Oh well, at least we are not in Denton, Texas where the people who democratically voted to ban fracking are being arrested by the people who passed a bill to ban the act of banning fracking. Maybe it's time to ban the people who ban banning.)

May you find yourself on a good list somewhere without having to move.
