Who Killed the Electric Car?

I just watched the movie, Who Killed the Electric Car.

I got it in the mail the other day from Blockbuster Online. I had selected it quite a while ago, and had almost forgotten it. Then, when it arrived, I almost decided to skip it, but I am so glad that I didn't. It was very interesting.

I am not big on conspiracy theories (I do believe that we really landed someone on the moon), but I did find many of the facts to be a little on the odd side. Especially the pictures of these cars being crushed, for no reason.

It was also odd to hear politicians speaking of trying to research the manufacture of an electric car, after they had decided to take them off the market. So, on one side of the country they are crushing these workable electric cars and on the other side of the country they are discussing how they could make these things, and funding research to do so. Weird.

Anyway, I thought it was interesting, and wanted to suggest that it was worth the time watching it.
