CalCars volunteer Les Montavon has come up with a concept for a flyer/poster on the subject of the auto industry's tag line for hybrids, "you don't have to plug them in" versus advocates of gas-optional or plug-in hybrids who say "you get to plug them in." You can view/download it (115K PDF) at
This is not a finished piece: it needs a graphic artist to step in. Meanwhile, we're interested in hearing comments, or receiving other suggestions along these lines. (send to info@...).
If someone steps forward to help on the graphics, we can turn it into a large poster for the CalCars booth (generously sponsored by Bluewater Network and Rainforest Alliance) at the Green Cities Expo (http://www.greencitiesexpo.org) during World Environment Day, June 3-5 at Fort Mason in San Francisco (volunteers needed to help at booth Fri 10-5, Sat 10-7, Sun 10-5).
