This is a really important documentary to see. This country can be independent from needing foreign oil. While it won’t happen anytime soon at least you can learn about alternative options. This film was well made and very informative I highly recommend it. You can find it at Netflix or your local video store.

Documentary Trailer

The film deals with the history of the electric car, its development and commercialization, mostly focusing on the General Motors EV1 , which was made available for lease in Southern California, after the California Air Resources Board passed the ZEV mandate in 1990, as well as the implications of the events depicted for air pollution , environmentalism, Middle East politics, and global warming.

The film details the California Air Resources Board‘s reversal of the mandate after suits from automobile manufacturers, the oil industry, and the George W. Bush administration. It points out that Bush’s chief influences, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, and Andrew Card, are all former executives and board members of oil and auto companies.
