So NASA is shipping stuff to the ISS that they aren't even sure will work? Well that seems sensible....

Electric cars dont necessarily solve environment problems but they at least give options that aren't possible if we stick with petrol. I.e. we don't have to burn stuff to generate leccy as you said, there are other options such as wind, hydro, nuclear (sustainability etc. of these is obviously still an open question but thats a seperate debate). Ultimately, my view is that leccy vehicles at worst consildate the existing env prob with burning of fossil fuels in a relative small number of areas (i.e. power plant) instead of millions of cars all with their own burners, and thats got to make environement issues easier to address with in the longer term.....
