Electric airplanes--no joke

On this blog, I was earlier making fun of the idea of biofuel, hybrid or electric airplanes.

However, at the Dec. 8 meeting of the MIT Club of Northern California, that’s exactly the topic:
Did you know that Electric Flight it has an amazingly long, technologically fascinating, and successful history?

Learn more from Dr. Mort Grosser, keynote speaker at EAA AirVenture 2008, where 540,000 people and 10,000 airplanes convened in Oshkosh.

Electric flight has become a hot topic because of the widespread Green Initiative and ongoing revolution in the electric power industry, from generation to end user. A piloted electric airplane flew at Oshkosh 2008, and rapid battery development presages a practical general aviation airplane within three to five years
So apparently it‘s no joke. I’m not sure if I can make it, but perhaps others will
