My name is Noel Adams and I run the evfinder.com web site among other things. I also write the occasional article for Electrifying Times and EV World. I am British but have lived in the Southern California area for over a quarter of a century. Before moving to the US I also spent four years working for an automobile manufacturer in the middle east.
I developed an interest in Electric Vehicles back around 1990 and my interest became an obsession when I tried unsuccessfully to lease a GM EV1. I realized that it was really difficult for people to even find information about electric vehicles, and finding an actual car was all but impossible. I decided to do something about it and started EVFinder.com. Now the evfinder web site gets about 60,000 hits per month and I have helped hundreds of people to find an electric car. Still, as Rodney Dangerfield says, "I get no respect". It gets frustrating at times to get totally ignored by a company like Tesla Motors. At times I feel like giving up then I get a dealer who tells me that their business depends on referrals from my site and it all seems worth while again.
The following page will contain my own thoughts on a variety of topics related to electric vehicles and will also allow me to stray off topic a bit and look at other issues such as hybrid vehicles, and issues surrounding air pollution and oil addiction, which are the reasons I got interested in Electric Vehicles in the first place.
Sunday July 26, 2020 – Energy Storage – I read all the time about how renewable energy, more specifically Solar and Wins won't work because they are too intermittent This is usually from people who are either pro fossil fuel or pro Nuclear. It reminds me of Clark's first law, "When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong"...Continued
Sunday May 31, 2020 – Charging on the GO – I have to admit that I don't get on Twitter as much as I should these days but last week I found time to check out my feed and found a link to an interesting article on a company that is going to launch a new way to charge.
Sunday May 24, 2020 – VW's Agency Approach - If you want to buy and electric vehicle it is not uncommon to have the sales person at the dealership try to talk you into a gas car. VW just announced it is trying an alternative approach...Continued
Sunday May 3, 2020 – Planet of the Humans – On Saturday I had the misfortune of watching the latest documentary from producer Michael Moore, "Planet of the Humans". The movie is slow and boring and contains more factual errors than you can shake a stick at. Given Moore's reputation this film has the distinct possibility of doing for the fossil fuel industry what "Who Killed the Electric Car" did for EVs.
Sunday April 26, 2020 – Loss of Two Climate Scientists -
This month we lost two prominent Climate Scientists both of who made significant contributions over the years. Yet one lost his way and became a leading climate denier while the other remained a prominent voice in the call for action on global warming...Continued
