California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger announced today that California is now and will be the world leader in alternative fuel vehicles, or else. While automakers first balked or threatened to sue the sunshine state when it came making cars of the future, Arnold has evidently convinced the recalcitrant manufacturers to join him in his quest for thinking beyond gasoline and merging onto the road of tomorrow - a hydrogen highway he has in fact signed into executive order. Alternative fuel vehicles from BMW, GM, Honda, Mercedes-Benz, and Tesla were revealed to great fanfare. The Governator assures us he not out to take the fun out of driving. Ahnold has test driven the super-electric Tesla. "It was hot", said Schwarzenegger.
