I saw the movie Who Killed the Electric Car last night.
Here is the blurb from IMDb.
With gasoline prices approaching $4/gallon, fossil fuel shortages, unrest in oil producing regions around the globe and mainstream consumer adoption and adoption of the hybrid electric car (more than 140,000 Prius' sold this year), this story couldn't be more relevant or important.
The foremost goal in making this movie is to educate and enlighten audiences with the story of this car, its place in history and in the larger story of our car culture and how it enables our continuing addiction to foreign oil.
This is an important film with an important message that not only calls to task the officials who squelched the Zero Emission Vehicle mandate, but all of the other accomplices, government, the car companies, Big Oil, even Eco-darling Hydrogen as well as consumers, who turned their backs on the car and embrace embracing instead the SUV.
Our documentary investigates the death and resurrection of the electric car, as well as the role of renewable energy and sustainable living in our country's future; issues which affect everyone from progressive liberals to the neo-conservative right."
Directed by Chris Payne, the movie paints a pretty scary picture of a very dark and depraved technocide.
I drove the EV1 once, and I thought it was quite an accomplishment.
It was fast.
It looked cool and it handled well.
I thought it would definitely appeal to many consumers.
And it did. Problem was, it wasn't suppose to.
GM executives gambled that the best designers couldn't make an electric transportation appliance that was appealing and really fun to drive.
They were wrong.
The folks at Aerovironment showed what can be achieved when we put our minds and hearts into making tools that are beautiful and smart.
So, instead of a sterile male, they had a verile male that was capable of making and inspiring lots of generations of offspring.
Consequently, in the minds and playbooks of the auto-oil complex executives, it had to be destroyed- Wiped off the face of the earth.
Otherwise, you could be driving to work on inexpensive, regionally produced windpower or soon to be affordable solar electricity instead. Your fuel supply would not need a military industrial complex to secure it and it would begin the long hard haul to non carbon emitting vehicles that will stop the change in our climate.
Who killed the Electric Car does a good job of exposing the suspects and the perpetrators of this crime against society and humanity in general.
By killing the electric car and the technology that was developed, the car companies, the oil companies, and all of their economic and political allies are guilty of a technocide that has and will result in the deaths and sufferings of millions and millions of humans as we find ourselves struggling to control the last half of our planetary oil endowment.
So this is not just a technocide.
It is the set up for a premeditated mass homocide for the control of money and power.
And, it makes robbing a bank and ruthlessly shooting the tellers and customers look like church camp.
Towards the end of the movie, I was initially encouraged to see that the new electric car, the plug-in hybrid, was given the crown of legacy by the experts in the movie.
When we walked out of the movie, my companion said I had a funny look on my face.
Perhaps I did.
Murderers make me nervous.
Especially when the "new hope" has just been fingered.
And the Murderers
are still on the loose.
