    There was much comment about the ‘MPGe’ metric which comprehensively demolished it as being of any relevance. The best alternative was ‘mile/$’ but even that would need some arbitrary formula to arrive at the electricity cost. Maybe all we could do would be to show a worst and best case scenario, the latter being almost infinity on wind/solar.

      Yeah, probably the best option.

    The item from Iran about electric motorbikes is significant. Coming on top of unambitious but genuine-looking solar plans (link), and a fair amount of wind (link), it looks as if Iran’s leaders are slowly turning green (the colour of Islam). Iranian public opinion counts, on maters outside the core norms of the theocracy, and motorbikes are the transport of young people.
