    This is what the burning Karma does when you park it.

    Heard there weren't any Chevy Volts there. No one wants to export them. But if they had been there imagine the fireworks between the two. Obama's Green assault gone wrong.

    I hear Barry is sensing windmills, charging stations and solar panels to Staten Island along with loads of Kashi and water.

    This is what a failure looks like.

    Electric cars burning
    Solar towers destroyed

    There's another huge downside to electric cars that dealers won't tell you about.

    A midsize Tesla electric car costs about $50,000. The batteries only last a few years and cost $40,000 to replace. You will NEVER balance the savings in gas with the extra cost of the electric car.

    But wait, it gets worse.

    The batteries in an electric car need to be maintained at a specific temperature range. To accomplish this, they have a circulation system which keeps the batteries heated in cold weather and cooled in hot weather. This means the car's batteries are being drained as they maintain that temperature range while the car is not in use. Your car is "running" even when you aren't using it.

    It has already happened more than once that someone with a Tesla has parked their car at an airport parking lot in a hot southern climate, and when they returned from their trip, their batteries were completely drained. When they get that far gone, they cannot be fixed and have to be replaced.

    $40,000.

    Some of the Tesla people have a name for a car that is in this condition.

    They call it a "brick".

    A $50,000 brick.
