May 14th Meet-Up and Drive

For our May 14th event, depending on numbers, we are planning to have lunch at either Ocean Terminal or in or around Hopewell Centre where there is ample parking.

After lunch, weather permitting, we will drive in groups up to the Jockey Club's Beas River Country Club in Sheung Shui for a leisurely afternoon / evening for tea and stroll through the extensive grounds.

Citing what's Creditable and Authoritative

In order to support Mark's RTHK 3 interview, here's a mini-research I did this morning. Short, but I only cite what's creditable and authoritative. More information in the caption of each photo.

RTHK Radio 3 Backchat 2016-04-18

Mark Webb-Johnson, Chairman, Charged Hong Kong, was a guest on this morning's RTHK Radio 3 Backchat radio program. Talking about EVs, the need for government incentives, environmental protection and our air quality.

Of particular focus was the recent report from Investment research firm Bernstein with the ridiculous allegation that EVs pollute more than petrol vehicles.

The report's author (Dr Neil Beveridge) is a 19+ year veteran of the oil and gas industry, holding an investment position in oil and gas stocks. He is hardly an independent authority. Let's try to avoid getting our environmental advice from an oil and gas investor. We'd rather listen to the dozens of academic papers from credible universities and private sector researchers, the environmental protection agencies around the world, and governments - all of whom are promoting and encouraging the switch to electric vehicles.

Mark Webb-Johnson, arguably Hong Kong's most notable spokesperson for EVs. He has appeared frequently on the media since the very first EV set wheels on Hong Kong soil. The Number 1 go-to person to ask anything about EVs, moderator of Tesla Motor Club forums and now the heart and spine of Charged Hong Kong. He's our guest of Charged Hong Kong Members' Stories #007, he's our James Bond, and he's the Charged Hong Kong chairman.

In this issue of Charged Hong Kong Members' Stories #006, he will share with us the motivation behind his SCMP story as well as suggestions for the Hong Kong Government to improve on the situation at car parks.

Alex Wai, a name known to many globally, yet we know so little of him, he tells EV stories of Asia to tens of thousands, yet almost none has told stories of him - he's an international man of mystery, he's the journalist of InsideEVs and he's our guest for today's issue of Charged Hong Kong Members' Stories #005!

Here's our interview below:

Charged Hong Kong Members' Stories #004 -- Mr. Desmond Wong
