We gathered a small 'EV Bloc' at the People's Climate March in New York City. There were more than 300,000 people marching the streets of New York demanding action from world leaders on climate change. Our 'EV Bloc' members were from all over the northeast, including plug-in car and plug-in motorcycle drivers. We had about a dozen people who came to be part of our 'EV Bloc' (plus several more who apparently came but couldn't find us because it was so crowded). We all had EV signs that said things like "Don't Pollute on Your Commute;" "Gas Sux;" "Electric Cars are Sexy;" and "Cars Don't Need Fossile Fuels." I'm conservatively estimating that about 300 people saw our signs. My "Electric Cars Are Sexy" sign was apparently so appealing that someone stole it while I was in a porta-potty for 60 seconds!
