Depends on if you want the base model that doesn't charge very fast and has less features vs. the mid model that most people will get.

Then you go from there and say - the mid-model LEAF 2.0 is around $32/33k, why not spend 3k more and get the base Tesla Model 3?

That gets you more range + a nationwide Supercharger network (with a yearly 1,000 free miles to travel) that Nissan doesn't have.

It's all relative though, if you drive only 20-30 miles a day and don't take road trips, the LEAF is perfect for you.....if you don't live in a hot climate.

If you don't know already, Katharine goes through each natural cycle and explains scientifically why it has nothing to do with the warming we are seeing now. This is a great video to share if others keep giving you these excuses.

Leonardo DiCaprio had a conversation with John Kerry on climate change. Skip the intro and start at the 11 minute mark.

Glad to see this, but duh! This doesn't have to be a republican or democrat thing....it's really a human species kind of thing, but at least more of the denial party is speaking out now.....

First, I love this.

Second, where do you think India will turn to to get these products? Surely won't be USA because Trump has decided to push away everyone telling him renewables are the future which make great business opportunities.

His ONE mantra is that he is a great business man. EPIC FAIL on this one buddy.
