OT: Revenge of the Electric Car

The Fobers, owners of a plug-in NEV for 1.5 years now, will be first in line when this film hits the 314. We highly recommend watching Who Killed the Electric Car? to get a bit of the history of the electric car and the issues surrounding its success (or lack thereof) in the US.

Your comments on two trade off issues:

1. From what I understand, the Dominican Republic has become a dumping ground for hybrid/electric car batteries. Haina in the DR is one of the most polluted places on the earth.

2. The source of the electric power. Here in NJ it would be nuclear; most other places oil/coal.
