Tony Tomei would not describe himself as a missionary of electric cars, although he admits to a little zealotry.
“Jiminy Cricket sounds about right,” he said with a sly grin. “He was Pinocchio’s conscience, you know, kept him from telling lies.”
Three years ago, Tomei knew very little about electric cars. Now he’s teaching the course with Skip Dunn at UNM-LA. And in a new and suddenly exploding field, he’s like a very knowledgeable one-eyed man leading the blind.
