Here’s a real world example from someone who has already ditched daily driving for subways and sports cars.
This is what reader Gregory has to say:
I ride the subways of Manhattan all week, then on Friday nights take the train to central Jersey to my parents place.
Hop into my turbo S2000 (what’s a catalytic converter?) and make up for my lack of pollution all weekend long.
As long as we burn gasoline, we might as well burn it for fun, don’t you think?
The highly didactic photo you see above was taken at the Melancthon I wind plant in Ontario, where 45 1.5-megawatt General Electric turbines crank out an estimated 177,000 megawatt-hours of energy a year. Plenty of power for the subways!
