In fact, a recent report by BC Hydro estimates new lighting regulations will increase annual greenhouse gas emissions in British Columbia by 45, tonnes annually as consumers use more energy to heat their homes after switching to more energy efficient - but cooler - lighting. Kawanabe is not saying anything new, but he is saying something that is either ignored or has yet to sink in with electric enthusiasts.
They go even less far if they go fast. They go even less far if they contain passengers or any significant cargo. Or if it is very cold.
Or if it is very hot. We've been getting the low end of the electric-only range, usually between 23 and 28 miles, undoubtedly due to this winter's deep freeze. The car's electric range is very susceptible to cold weather, primarily because the heater runs on electricity. We also found that an extended highway cruise shortens the electric range.

State Fragility and Electoral Reforms in Lesotho. About this book Introduction This book describes the contrast between the strong economic growth and democratization that have occurred in Africa and its stalling political progress.
Following the examination of the drivers of fragility and the impact of fragility on citizens and neighbouring states, the book discusses capacity building approaches. This part shows how effective states can be built on the African continent, a process that would result in a change from state fragility to state resilience.
It is based on lessons learnt from close studies of the nations where the state has been most developed in the region, in Eastern and Southern Africa. The book provides and responds to the most recent and up-to-date information on African development and uses insights of people who have lived and worked in the continent for most of their lives.
