Here in the United States, GM and Chrysler bought up all the "Interurbans," electric trains that ran between thousands of cities and towsn-- and shut them down so that they could sell the same municipalities fossil-fueled buses. This is mentioned in the book "Crabgrass Frontier: The Suburbanization of America," by Kenneth T. Jackson (if he sounds familiar, he's the guy who wrote the "Don't Know Much About History" series of books).

It appears that some companies are committed to developing the electric car, particularly now that Lithium Ion batteries are around-- they're a huge jump in battery technology.

Watched "Who Killed the Electric Car" recently (great documentary), then i heard that GM and Tesla are making another run at the electric car (yay for progress!) hopefully development of this technology can go on unhindered by the corporations that depend on oil consumption.

Just watched this. Liked the story and message a lot, but it would have benefited from being a 60-minute exposé rather than a 90-min doc. I want an electric car now.

Or, if you believe David Icke, this is all part of the green lizard alien's plot.

I hadn't heard about this film before, but I might add it to our list. I hear you when you say that some of these documentary films are disappointing.

For example... Dollface, I noticed that The Corporation is on your queue, and that is a good film. Not great, because again, the narration is very, very, VERY on the dull side. But the content of the film is astonishing, and it will make you want to go online and find out more information about the many ways in which we, the ordinaty people, get screwed. As a good counterbalance to The Corporation, I would recommend The Yes Men, which is a much funnier take on the absurdity of corporate life.

Great post, Karen.

Oh, yeh, oil and dirty stuff runs our economy - and our wars I believe. I read somewhere about baby Bushies' grandpa being involved with the Nazi's - some sort of energy related trade during WWII and that's supposedly where the dynasty's $ came from. Do you know anything about that?
