I think all cars should be electric because they are more fuel efficient and would be better for the world

most cars should be electric or other things besides fossil fuels because it is much better for the planet and for everyone.

Yea, If all cars were electric the oil crisis would be over.

I think all cars should be electric because it would cut down on fossil fuels, and would be much better for the environment.

3. All cars should be electric because it does not pollute as much. We need to save the envirment.

I think that it is okay to at least leave and keep cars that run on gas and start making electric

some cars can be electric but it can't be the only resource because it's not renewable.

All cars should be electric because of the fuel efficientness.

Maine's energy alternatives include: wind, tidal, solar, among others...

We have the ability to have a good amount of wind farms in Maine but people don't like how they work.

I don't think that all cars should be electric but I think that more should be made for people to buy.

Yes,all cars should be electric because gas cars are not good for the earth. The gas that comes out of the car is bad for the environment.

I am not sure there are any "local energy Initiatives". Energy has traditionally been served on a large scale. Local initiatives are a new idea that are just starting.

3. yes all cars should be electric, it would save people more money in the long run. They are a lot more effiecent than normal cars and eat up less gas. they also cost a lot less to mantain.

I believe we should use nuclear power in Maine. Wind solar, hydro, and geothermal are costly and have many drawbacks. Nuclear makes a lot of cheap power, and nuclear power really isn't that dangerous. France has always used nuclear, and they have had no issues with it. Nuclear is the most efficient.

In question 3, I think that not all cars should be electric because it is not as efficient as gasoline, and you still need to burn something to make electricity, so your still polluting with less efficiency.

For alternate resources that are available in Maine can be wood,coal,hydro power, wind power, solar power and geothermal energy and maybe crops like corn

where are we getting the electricity from to power these cars?

I think that if cars would be made so their carbon footprint was smaller, it would be OK. Electric cars are a smart idea, but should not be the only source.

I belive that all cars should be elertic so that the whole war in iraq might end if the only reason we are there is for oil

2. we could use solar wind an hydropower in maine simply by putting up some windmills, solar panels and some dams and would be 10x more effiecent than what we have now

I love games they are awesome!!!!!!!

It only makes sense for all cars to go to electric if the sources of electricity are clean and renewable. While yes, we would cut down on pollutants by just having clean car exhaust, imagine how much better it would be for the environment if the sources of electricity that power the cars was clean too.

I think the country should use more electric, solar, and wind power.

Electric Cars are a good idea, but take a very long time to charge. If batteries are developed that can charge in- say 10 minutes, then they would make sense. However, If batteries that last a long time are developed, that would work good also.
