Editorial Review

There seems to be a perception that there's some kind of controversy over whether climate change exists or whether it's caused by human activity. Wrong. There's no controversy. Every serious scientist believes that climate change is here and we, as human beings, are responsible. If you point at record snowfalls and claim that they disprove global warming, you don't understand meteorology. That snow is the result of massive amounts of moisture moved into the upper atmosphere by unprecedented amounts of heat. It just turns cold in the upper atmosphere and comes back down as snow. No one knows if climate change will result in record heat, a new ice age, or both; climate activities are a chaotic phenomenon, which means that their outcome is unpredictable. All we know is that it's going to be bad.

And it's already begun. Nothing we do today can prevent serious climate change tomorrow, but at least we can slow it down and leave some sort of recognizable planet to our grandchildren. The main cause of climate change is increasing amounts of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. A certain amount of carbon dioxide is necessary to keep our planet from becoming a snowball, but too much will turn it into a hellhole like Venus. The precise balance of carbon dioxide is what's important and the most significant thing that you, as an individual, can do to reduce carbon dioxide excess is to buy an electric car.

If you already have one and are doing your part, you need a place to charge it. Consider the Schneider Electric EVLink Wallbox. It's not powerful enough to charge recent Tesla models, which have a high battery acceptance rate and can potentially charge up to three times faster than the EVLink Wallbox can handle, but if you have a Ford Focus, Nissan Leaf, Chevy Volt or any of the less powerful electric cars, this will be all your vehicle needs. It takes up minimal space on your garage wall and you can re-skin it to match your garage's decor (or just to look cool). It comes with an 18-foot charging cable, which should be adequate for most needs. For alternatives, look at the Leviton EVB40-P5T or the Siemens VersiCharge.

Flawless operation after the first month of use. It has features that others don't have. No need for WIFI connection on this unit.

This one is fairly light plastic body and face plate suitable for inside garage installation. Not quite flimsy but easy to twist and flex.
