Bill Moore is the founder, publisher and editor of EVWorld.Com, which he launched in 1998 to cover developments in electric vehicle technology. Moore holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in theology from Ambassador College in England. In 1994, he began designing web sites for major corporations in Omaha, as well as serving as an Internet "evangelist" for the AIM Institute.
Intrigued by electric car developments in California, Moore shifted his focus to creating an online 'zine to highlight the promise and problems of introducing efficient, non-polluting vehicles from bikes to buses to boats.

There are a variety of alternatives, "some evolutionary, some revolutionary," he continued. One type of automobile technology he recommended was that of "plug-in hybrids" which can run on both electricity and liquid fuel such as ethanol.

For longer trips, the vehicle's engine that runs on liquid fuel can be used, he noted. Moore also discu ... More »Host: George Noory
