NYT discussion of electric vehicles

See the following note by yours truly as well as by 5 other analysts of the auto industry. The New York Times Room for Debate feature covers a wide variety of topics, and attracts lots of comments, some of them, uh, unusual as NYT tries to lean towards accepting all comers, but many that are thoughtful and informed. I peruse it regularly, and not just when it covers topics specific to the auto industry or to economics.
