    Agree with the electric cars, but what's the issue with batteries? I think it makes sense to have an inductive charging lane on major highways to increase range (probably doesn't need to fully charge a car, but slow down the draw, in the near term. Makes sense for ev trucking). With 300+ mile ev's today, I don't' see why you would want to backwards.

    Mining etc... involved for batteries vs just generation would be my guess.
