The electric vehicle; is it the future, a winged dragon fantasy or just another corporatist scheme to grab government subsidies? What’s the point exactly?
Ser Jaime Lannister—eldest son of Lord Tywin Lannister, twin brother of Cersei, and older brother of Tyrion—climbed on a winged dragon last week and flew eastward to kick off one of the most amazing fantasies since Game of Thrones.
Actually, it wasn’t Ser Jaime Lannister; it was Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, the actor who plays Lannister in Game of Thrones. And it wasn’t a winged dragon; it was a Chevy Bolt. But the part about kicking off one of the most amazing fantasies the world has ever seen is actually true.
Coster-Waldau was the lead driver for the launch of The New American Road Trip, a 12-day “electric-vehicle car tour across America” which started on September 14 at the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco and will end in New York City on September 26 in the middle of Climate Week NYC and the One Planet Summit.
