Sedona AZ (April 12, 2021) – In celebration of Earth Day, Thursday, April 22, a pandemic-friendly event is being planned for the cars of the future to parade through the Verde Valley. Earth Day is celebrated each year in April, and marks the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. This is a day to focus on our environment and demonstrate our commitment for a healthy, sustainable environment and for clean air, water, and healthy soil. Since Electric Vehicles don’t rely on fossil fuels for power, they don’t emit carbon dioxide emissions (CO2), which helps reduce air pollution. Hybrid cars have a second electric motor, burning less fuel than conventional cars. Oxendale and Hyundai Dealerships will be participating along with residents from across the Valley. This is the route of the Parade:
- 10 AM—Gather at Posse Grounds Park
- Drive through West Sedona via 89A
- 10:45—11 AM—Pause at Cottonwood City Hall, EV Charging Station
- Drive through Old Town Cottonwood to Clarkdale
- 11:30—Noon—Gather at Clarkdale Park
Please join the Northern Arizona Climate Change Alliance (NAZCCA) and our Mayors to cheer us on to celebrate our Earth Day on its 51st birthday.
For information or to join in, please contact BeverlyNazcca@gmail.com.
I would like to participate in the ev parade tomorrow.
I have a Ford F-150 ev conversion.
My apologies for this late communication!
Just where do you think that electricity to power “the cars of the future” comes from?
Moreover, these bunch of freaking idiots do not realize that the making one lithium battery alone destroy more than 5 dozen carbon-spewing gas vehicles. Should the electric car catch fire it is nearly impossible to put out due to the batteries. Auto car locks have killed 100s who died because they couldn’t get out of their burning cars
Plants need carbon. It’s part of our ecology.
While I am not saying we should not be sh!tting where we live, this is the biggest piece of nonsense since masks were deemed to stop COVID – even tho “not for COVID” is written on the box the mask comes in.
The world is upside down.
Doesn’t ANYONE here realize that the reason the governments want electric vehicles isn’t for an altruistic reason – it’s so the next time there is a stay-at-home order, all they have to do is shut down the grid to make sure you’re not going anywhere.
Wake the F up.
