The European Union has released a blueprint plan to address fossil fuel shortages, pollution, and global warming.  Other parts of the plan calls for the ban of fossil fuel vehicles inside city limits by 2050.

Face it, the only reason people are concerned about electric vehicles is the lack of range, which is already becoming a moot point with multiple vehicles boasting a 200+ mile range (1, 2, 3)

Kepler montage of planets.  Epic cool stuff.
