So my grandfather went into World War I on a horse, on a horse. I don’t know if you’ve ever ridden a horse but if people are shooting at you it’s just not the best place to be. You’re high off the ground; they shoot the horse and you’re now immobile and you may end up underneath the horse and it’s all very bad in that regard. Twenty years later, when both of my parents got involved in World War II, nobody who was fighting a war did it on a horse. Everything changed in transportation in just 20 years so let’s do it again. Let’s make all electric cars. Let’s make all the electricity from wind and solar.
