Obama called it "the biggest, most important step we've ever taken to combat climate change."

As usual It's just words.

"states will have more time to submit and begin implementing their plans to meet their targets — two more years, or until 2022"

So no change necessary or even a plan for change for another 7 years.

This measure could receive a 100% bi-partisan affirmative vote today and be reversed by either of the next two administrations before it even starts to be implemented.

GW will not be addressed via politics.

The 200+ mile range electric cars due to go on sale starting in 2016 will need fast charging, a much better public fast charging network, and 100+ kW charging speed will be highly desirable.  The Kia Soul EV is already there with 100 kW CHAdeMO support.

Use of OpenStreetMap?  I'm familiarizing myself with OSM and see that they've defined a fairly good set of data to describe charging_station's.  Any idea who's using this ??

We experimented with this a little on the OCM website, the POI details page also queries Yelp for places of interest nearby. Our app doesn't use that however. I've yet to find a globally relevant Places service though as it seems to vary by region as to which services have good info.

I'm with Transition Silicon Valley - and am educating myself on OSM and had similar ideas to what you're discussing.  Basically, the Resource Mapping task in the Handbook.  Has this work progressed?
