    I have no problem whatsoever with skepticism - there's a huge lack of skepticism on both sides of the global warming issue. (Not that there is a huge argument going on among scientists - the onus is now on the "anti" crowd to make their case - with facts, not spin.)

    In any case, with strangers I don't even bother with the global warming argument. There are so many other important reasons for driving an EV.

    Come to Germany, we already do!

    Uhmm, no. At least not here. People have simply gotten used to prices like more than 8 Dollars per gallon (1,60 Euro per litre premium unleaded at the moment). On the whole they don't drive less than when it was "cheap". (When was that?)

    The tax credit was done by the Bush administration.

    IMHO...the below video tells why we on this forum want or have a tesla very well...

    Simon Sinek: How great leaders inspire action | Video on TED.com

    and all the details gather around the WHY.
    If the WHY from TESLA gets to you...you're in...if not, then not. TESLA is (at least today in the early adaptor phase) not necessary for everyone.

    I believe we can drive a great car, that is not nearly as bad for the environment, and doesn't make people who want to kill us rich.

    In Italy the unleaded costs almost 1,80 euro per litre.

    It's a mental adjustment to be sure.

    Let's take another example:
    Imagine every time you went to sleep you had to go to a hotel to do so. Now someone tries to sell you a bed -- to personally own. You might have a hard time grasping why you would spend money to buy such a thing.
