Anyone heading up there tomorrow?
Think I might take off around noon from work and check it out.
I attended the ZEV Symposium back in September of 06 which was a blast for an EV head. (pics I took from the day here.)

I wonder if Chris Paine is there filming "Who Saved the Electric Car"?
(It seems like the usual cast of characters has assembled)
As much as I would like to go, I can't make it.

CARB seems to be motivated more by big business and big politics and less by public sentiment.
California cuts future quotas for clean-air cars - Yahoo! Singapore News
"Following a marathon session that included testimony from dozens of auto executives and environmentalists, the board voted to reduce the number of pure ZEVs, or cars powered entirely by batteries or hydrogen fuel cells, to 7,500 for the three years from 2012 to 2014. The previous requirement, from 2003, called for 25,000 such vehicles during that period."
"Advocates of clean car technologies called the move a step backward for California's push to cut car pollution, and accused the board of kowtowing to automakers."
I wonder how fat the checks in the mail for the CARB board are?
