“The $700 million investment will go to the Flat Rock, Michigan plant to produce more electric and self-driving cars. Ford believes electrified vehicles will outsell gas-powered vehicles within the next 15 years.”
See Ford cancels Mexico plant. Will create 700 U.S. jobs in ‘vote of confidence’ in Trump – Jan. 3, 2017Just when commentators here pronounce me crazy for seriously considering an electric vehicle, Ford announces they will invest $700million in a new plant in Michigan. I’m way ahead of them if I invest $250 to reserve my Solo EV and actually start driving one next year. Proportionally I will be making a bigger investment. Also, I’m going to have some more solar power for the car right in my yard about the same time. It just makes sense to build/buy what the world needs. It’s all good in the end. No doubt Trump will claim responsibility… Oops, he’s still denying climate change.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
