    The guitarist at our wedding played Maunaleo.
    I play Hanohano Ka Lei Pikake on the boat.
    I also play Ipo Lei Momi sometimes.
    I had Maunaleo in my head all day.

    Now what it cost to charge, I have no idea.
    I live in the land of Tesla. We have charging stations all over the place. The gold standard for charging stations are the ones that have "quick charging."

    Of course, one of the keys to electric cars is that you can install a charging station at home.

    And I just did a quick Google search of the Rochester, NY, area for charging stations - came up with 30+ without even scrolling the map. I know you're not right in Rochester, though...

    The carbon footprint is highly variable depending on how your utility generates its electricity. In my area, where the majority of the electricity comes from hydro power, the carbon footprint is quite low. In areas that use coal for the majority of their generation it will be quite a bit higher. No study I've seen (that wasn't conducted by a high school kid) has ever shown electric cars to have a larger carbon footprint than internal combustion engines - not even close.

    This kid just did a study on the Prius and specifically the battery manufacturing and disposal. He was bummed. His research was contrary to what he thought it would be. From what I remember the mining process for the chemicals in the battery, the manufacturing process and it's damage to the earth when disposed were more damaging than a gas powered car over the lifetime of the cars. He set out to prove that electric cars need to replace fossil fuel cars.

    Oh - now environmental impact is a different argument! Lithium (used in the batteries) only has a couple of really good sources, from what I've heard, and obtaining it is pretty rough on the environment from which it comes. There's a dry lake in Chile that's basically flooded, the brine allowed to concentrate, and then stripped away.

    Maybe environmental impact was what he was measuring. It was for an FBLA project and I just helped him with proofread his paper. It stands out in my mind because of how bummed he was about his findings.
