Clean, renewable wave energy has been sloshing up against the shores of North America for millennia, only to disappear into the ether, and it looks like the US is finally going to grab some back. A US wave energy

Earlier this year, Gadling ran a promotion challenging readers to define their perfect road trip. The winner of the competition won a two day road trip of their choice in a brand new Cadillac SRX, with fuel, lodging and airfare all covered. We had a wealth of excellent entries ranging from trips through the Florida Keys to leaf tours through the Northeast to jaunts down the California coast, but our lucky winner chose a long road trip through the great state of Oregon, beginning in the metropolis of Portland then working down the coast to Crater Lake National Park.
Dilligent bloggers as we are, we sent a team to follow in the footprints, documenting the journey and consuming the Oregon asphault in a similar SRX.
What emerged was more than a simple road trip through the Northwest. Two old friends on the hilly backroads

Oregon’s legislature has just adopted a bill to get the state off coal and onto renewables, and to use that renewable electricity to power the state’s cars, trucks, and buses. As my colleague, Noah Long, explains in a blog co-authored with Angus Duncan who chairs Oregon’s Global Warming Commission, this is a remarkable milestone.
Focusing here on the provisions of the bill designed to increase access to charging stations for electric vehicles, the bill instructs Oregon’s Public Utilities Commission to order electric utilities to propose programs and investments to “accelerate transportation electrification” by the end of this year.
This bipartisan vote builds upon the consensus in support of similar legislation in California and the recent approval of two widely supported proposals by San Diego Gas Electric and Southern California Edison to deploy charging stations for electric vehicles in a manner that helps soak up solar and wind

At the Geneva Auto Show earlier this month, big luxury had its day.
Maserati showed its $72,000 Levante SUV; Bentley debuted a stretch-limo version of its $304,000 Mulsanne; Rolls-Royce gave us a blacked-out version of its $296,000 Ghost. And that’s not to mention the unveiling of the $2.6 million Bugatti Chiron.
Next week in New York, luxury automakers are catching their breath. Which means many of them—McLaren, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Bentley, Bugatti, Tesla, Fisker, and Cadillac—are skipping it altogether. (Tesla, for its part, will unveil the Model 3 on March 31.)
“I think most of the auto manufacturers are entering the show with a feeling of what I would call ‘hopeful trepidation,’” said Jack Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book. “Sales results in the U.S. so far this year
