I think the conversion to electric (for many) is less a "solution" and more an "intention" to move forward.

Here in coal-fuelled Alberta, owning an electric car is actually more carbon producing than a Honda Civic. Next door in hydro-powered BC it is way, way less. Doesn't stop concerned Albertans from buying electric cars, and IMHO it shouldn'tóthe more common it becomes the more likely it is that it will eventually make a significant difference.

So more power to the electric boaters!
