I don’t particularly like the TV show Top Gear at the best of times because of the values it portrays and represents, however when I read today that Jeremy Clarkson deceived his audience when performing a review of the Tesla Roadster electric vehicle, I thought even less of this arrogant man. Apparently Jeremy is very anti-electric vehicle, anti-environmental and does not hesitate to promote the fact on his show and takes every opportunity to discredit this technology.
I am not alone in my dislike, so it seems. Robert Llewellyn (of Red Dwarf and Scrap Heap Challenge fame), has had a go at the popular TV series. He has produced a great on-line TV show called “Fully Charged” which in my humble opinion helps to breakdown some of the myths about electric vehicles that the popular press have been tarring them with. I love the way he goes about calculating the total carbon emissions of both an EV and an ordinary internal combustion engine.
I present to you the pilot episode of “Fully Charged”.
Check out Robert’s YouTube Channel called fullychargedshow for further episodes. He has been posting one a week for the last month or so. A cool show and I hope he posts many more. It may even get picked up by mainstream TV. By the time I get a telly it might be showing in Australia!
