Who Killed the Electric Car?

with 3 comments

Fuel fear & war with oil. The electric car worked – 1996. No pollution, cheaper, fiable. So General Motors replaced it with… the Hummer. And put the poor PR guy make his job. Better check out what the guys at the end of the movie did:

  1. Yes, and the quiet peace loving “empowered woman” look doesn’t hurt at all the “e-enthusiast” (what the hell does that mean?) tag that was nicely added to the name of the interviewed person ;)

    Anyway, the idea of a solarpowered car is not so ridiculous. People need a garage for an electric car like the one in the second video, but for the ones that don’t have a garage, they usually drive their cars to work, then leave the car in the open, IN THE SUN, until evening. Even if the car is a hybrid, the amount of energy savings would make a huge difference.

    It is funny, though, how probably the electric car will be possible in the end only because of the cell phone. And the problems will probably be the same: “Oh, damn, I forgot to charge my car!” :)

  2. Agree about solar energy, too.

    Global warming = increase in energy in the atmosphere (which was caused by the search for energy)
    So let’s get the energy from the increase in temperature (that’s the solar cell principle, ain’t it?) instead of oil.

    WTF? NAH… where’s the corporate profit? i.e. low self-esteem, vain vanity, consumerism, unneeded needs, disease, fear, dependency, war, military trade, fear… as if we as humanity weren’t able to kick ourselves in the balls without corporate assistance…

  3. Actually, you got it a bit wrong. While temperatures have been rising, the light from the sun actually DECREASED. Look up Global Dimming.
