2 points which may have already been mentioned. The cold issue is in regards to lead acid batteries. Do not for a minute think that is the technology proposed. The new batteries and those coming shortly operate just fine to -20C (rare enough in Canada these days). Secondly, Better Place brings partners which produce clean energy in the deal. Even if the source is coal powered, it is much easier to clean up a power plant than a million cars. Lastly, bravo to your leader in Ontario. I am from Quebec where we have tons of electricity and yet your leaders are showing more vision than ours. We still use petrol based buses on Ste-Catherine street while Calgary (from the oil patch) uses electric trams.
