It’s coming time to say goodbye to my Better Place electric car in Israel
Another disappointment in the sorry tale of the end of the dream of ending dependence on oil.
I actually get emotional about Better Place still. The promise was so great, the potential to change the world in a good way was there but many things went wrong.
