Who Killed the Electric Car?
With little publicity and less fanfare, the documentary movie Who Killed the Electric Car opened on the same day as Superman. The Michael Moore-type of conspiracy doc blames big car and oil companies for sabotaging the marketing of EVs in America. They must have colluded with the Japanese too in preventing Americans from buying these cars. At least Environmental Defense, in their new report, lays some ot the blame on the purchasing practices of Americans. The average American likes everything BIG, from French fries and burgers to SUVs, homes and money. That's why we are FIRST world and a SUPERPOWER. Too bad it appears the electric vehicle could not keep up.
