A bit before the invention of the car the thing that was happening the invention/adoption of Diapers for Horses. I’m not joking actually and it was a matter of discussion among serious people in the UK.
But while some people were worried about those diapers, so other were busy inventing the car!
I think that’s exactly the point we’re in now. While some people worry about gas ducts all over the country, the era of eletric cars/trucks is on the edge of the begin. From this point on, only this will grow.
Viva Tesla Motors!
