I just viewed a documentary film called “Who Killed the Electric Car”. If you’re interested in finding out just how stupid and greedy GM is then I can certainly recommend this wonderful film. It documents how GM produced a very successful electric car in the mid 90’s in Southern California. It detailed how they realized that the success of that vehicle would ultimately eliminate their replacement parts business associated with gasoline cars and how an electric car would eliminated the need for people to find a filling station every time they needed to plug it in. As a result, they actually went around California and collected all of the electric cars they were testing using agreeable consumers and destroyed each and every car. Oh yes, I forgot….they also bought a new battery design and the company that makes this new battery from the inventor and then sold it to…are you ready…..an oil company….Shell Oil to be exact. Shell has of course, killed the new battery and GM has of course killed the electric car! What criminals. GM deserves all of the bad things that are currently happening to them. Put them in jail.

The price of gas will go up because of the demand, just this week I took the bus to Portland, OR and the bus stopped at the train station, which was really cool because I could get downtown that much faster, the bus would save gas by making less stops.
Another thing I would wonder about, if the government can help the airlines when it is going to help Amtrack? I mean to get the airplane down the runway takes an enoumous amount of gas, I would bet than Amtrack could go from Portland, Or to Chicago on that amount of gas, any maybe even further, what does it take to make congress see that taking the train is easier to get into the center of town than an airplane.
Also when you consider that the weather can be a problem and then the incident of where people waited on the tarmak for 8 hours, I only hope that no one suffered a heart attack or leg problems further down the road.
Also taking the train is not wasted because you can meet a lot of interesting people.

Read up on the hybrid battery manufacturing process.
Also, most LNG companies will handle alternative fuel infrastructure in the future. Why? Because they already have the structure in place. So, they will go from the evil oil companies to the evil hydrogen companies down the road.

GM has had 3 decades to change course, and to this day they show absolutely no interest in doing so. My only hope is that the taxpayers don’t end up bailing these pigs out when they file for bakruptcy.
