Event Report

Ambler Mayor Jeanne Sorg came out to see what all the talk was about, and she was happy to see over 50 Electric Vehicles parked between Weavers Way Co-Op and Ambler Beverage Exchange.

Representatives from Penn Environmental were on hand to explain how pending EPA clean car ruling will damage the health of millions of Americans, while giving a free ride to the lazy big three USA auto makers and fossil fuels industry.

Each owner had her or his own personal story to tell; most active in doing their part to save a livable biosphere. Rick Denzien, organizer of the event, is a Zero Emission Musician driving 90,000+ (one 7th of all 50 EVs at the show) gasless miles since 2013 reported that he has given 4,600 rides between his two Nissan Leaf vehicles, and now 33 in his 2018 Tesla Model 3. "MPG requirements should be going up not down", he says, "Allowing the antiquated 1800's technology that is ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) cars to be on the road, in an insult to inventive engineers everywhere, anti people and morally irresponsible."

Rowan Energy Integration visionary Dennis Rowan said, "ICE is like going back analog phones, which is ridiculous. How about going back to a 300 baud dial-up modem instead of fiber optics at a thousand meg a second? That is how bad ICE is. Only 16 - 20% efficient, thousands of parts, any one of which will cost the consumer thousands to fix. ICE is dirty, polluting, costs more money to operate and maintain, and that is just the upside".
