extension of the Agency's 1987 Unfinished Business report, a landmark
study in which EPA officials estimated risks posed by various
environmental problems." The new report, addressed to the
Administrator, recommends policy changes. If you would like to take
a look at this document, the call number is EPAX 9010-0007a,b,c.

Letter to the Editor

This month's "Question of the Month" feature is a Letter to the Editor
which was written in response to the September "Question of the
Month." The staff of the Broker were delighted to receive this letter
and encourage other EPA staff to share their comments and ideas
with them.

The Library has obtained a set of the RCRIS Instructional Series
videotapes. The  two tapes effectively orient managers and users to the
goals,  purposes  and use of this major EPA database.  If you are

on] solar electric vehicles...[that may have] cast [them] in an unfavorable light.... [It was
noted] that solar and electric cars do not pollute the environment during use.... Solar cars
eliminate all the problems gasoline (or alcohol,  methanol, natural gas) cars have with smog,
carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide (global warming) pollution. Solar reduces the
problems of oil spills from tankers and drilling. Then there is the food and land impact
problems with corn or wood conversion to fuels which solar avoids.... [To] toot...solar's
horn alot more, [following is more information:]
       Electric car... batteries are no larger than the drive train (larger engine, gas tank,
        exhaust system, etc.) of carbon-fueled cars.
       ...All cars need to be refueled, but gas cars require breathing carcinogenic

        benzene fumes when they "recharge." Admittedly, the charging of electric cars
        takes longer, but this can be done at night, or if solar cells are involved, while the
        car sits in the sun in the parking lot all day!
       Electricity needed to recharge the batteries is generally produced by
        coal-fueled plants that create pollution.  Response: The New York Times pointed
        out that, based on the mix of coal, oil, hydro, and nuclear plants currently in use,
        electric vehicles recharged by such plants emitted, per mile, less than 1/25th the
        NOx, CO and hydrocarbons emitted by alcohol-methanol cars. And methanol cars
        are considerable cleaner than standard gasoline cars, except as to CO2,
        producing more of this global warming pollution. Why this cleanliness? Because
        the internal combustion engine wastes 70% of its energy in friction and heat.
        Electric motors, by contrast, convert stored to kinetic energy with very little waste.
       Cars have a limited range of approximately 100 miles[; however, this]... takes care
        of 90% of transportation needs, since most people commute less than 20 miles to
        work one way.
       The power of a (solar-charged) battery  [often thought to be] very limited....
        [However,] General Motors has built a prototype and will shortly be manufacturing
        for general purchase their Impact electric car, which  can acclerate from 0 to 60
        miles per hour in 8  seconds, faster than the Mazda  Miata or Nissan 300 ZX.
        Hardly a weak sister! The Impact's batteries could be recharged by solar cells,
        available for decades in this country, or from a wall socket. It makes no difference.
       [There is concern that these cars are] limited to low speeds. Response:
        While it is true that one solar car averaged 41.5 miles per hour, they were pacing
        themselves like a long distance runner.  The Impact  has plenty of muscle for
        acceleration to  speeds well in excess of anything safe or legal on our highways.
        Another electric race car was clocked at over 200  mph in the Salt Flats. Most
        commuter cars wish they could average 41.5 miles per hour.  Too often, they are
        stuck at a traffic light or traffic jam averaging less than 30 miles per hour overall.
        Keep your eyes on this November's World Solar Challenge races in Australia to
        see the previous record left in the dust.

      Solar and electric cars avoid much of the maintenance that comes with gas or
alcohol engines (no more oil changes, points, plugs, burned valves, smoking piston rings,
boiling radiators) since they have fewer moving parts that do  not have to withstand the
strain of repeated internal explosions. While solar and electric cars are not convenient for
long-distance trips yet, they satisfy most of our transportation needs while making much
more of an impact on pollution than alcohol cars.

      They are not anemic golf carts. The only smoke emitted from the backside of these
cars comes from their tires as they rift down the highway! Let's get charged up about solar
and electric cars!
                                    Sincerely,
