In communities that are big and remote such as those up north of Canada I do not think that giving car/ truck is possible. But we can still enhance everyone's awareness of the amount of emission he/ she is generating by visualizing it in terms of a geographical area: Joshua M. Pearce, Sara J. Johnson, and Gabriel B.

It looks like companies in the subsection of solar energy that are burgeoning everywhere fit well in the definition of green companies. More will be need to make sure that grid parity is achieved as expected. Until then, keep the radical view that PV, among others, leads to a sustainable future: Joshua Pearce, "Photovoltaics - A Path to Sustainable Futures", Futures 34(7), 663-674, 2002. http://www.sciencedirect.com/science?_ob=ArticleURL&_udi=B6V65-45TTMFB-9&_user=1025668&_rdoc=1&_fmt=&_orig=search&_sort=d&view=c&_acct=C000050549&_version=1&_urlVersion=0&_userid=1025668&md5=5ec742b0d1fa8f169690c3cd72a114d4

This is great news. Ontario, Canada has decided on coal exit by 2014. With the reduction on fossil fuel usage PV will really be leading the path to sustainability, as claimed in the below article: Joshua Pearce, "Photovoltaics - A Path to Sustainable Futures", Futures 34(7), 663-674, 2002
The following is an interesting idea: a plug-in can be just as simple and animating enough to visualize to vehicle users that their current emission requires how large an area on earth to absorb.
