Weekly Roundup, Friday 3 February, 2017

Good morning For the second week in a row, our new President is impacting on my choice of feature articles.  But his impact last week was generally rated positively, and I hope you’ll like this week’s article too which, in truth, actually is very little about the President, himself.

The Most Ridiculous Argument Yet Against Battery Electric Vehicles?

There is a lot of misinformation and quite possibly, if the conspiracy theorists are to be believed, deliberate disinformation, about battery electric vehicles (BEV).

Weekly Roundup, Friday 18 November 2016

Good morning It has been a very long time since I last wrote to you on a Friday morning.  Our amazing New Zealand tour (and Australian extension) plus, well, ‘life in general’, all conspired to interfere, but here I am again this morning, with a huge variety of items to share with you today in […]
