Commenting article: A Phoenix Rising: Bulgaria's Electric Vehicles Industry

An international conference on electric cars organized in Bulgaria's capital Sofia in February 2011 turned into a much more high-profile event than anybody expected.

It was then that Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov and Economy Minister Traikov made it clear that Bulgaria hopes to become a "major player" in the development and production of electric cars. The conference was surprisingly attended even by EU Commissioner for Industry and Entrepreneurship Antonio Tajani.

"Bulgaria is certainly one of the major players who have committed serious efforts to electric cars and electric mobility. This is proven not just by the conference on electric vehicles held in Sofia on February 10-11, and other similar forums, but also during the meetings of the EU Ministers for competitiveness in the EU Council of Ministers. Bulgaria has always declared this commitment on its part," EU Commissioner Tajani told me in an exclusive interview.

Tempo, Tempo!

Let’s show the world that Bulgaria and Europe can lead the global innovation and ingenuity! Let’s bring back the glory to the old continent!

(BTW I’m sick and tired and pretty much the rest of the world is too, from the Americans and their bragging on how great they are…..)

Anything, and everything that gives rise to a cleaner world should be applauded and grasped with both hands; wherever the concept was born.

Of America... Of Americans...

I read in the newspapers they are going to have 30 minutes of intellectual stuff on television every Monday from 7:30 to 8. to educate America. They couldn't educate America if they started at 6:30.

I've been watching George Carlin recordings all morning today. Sharp but not always right.
