Impact of GM Destroying the EV1

The documentary Who the Electric Car comes to a number of On the encouraging side, the EV1 proved an car could be reliable fun to drive, and well liked (one say loved) by its owners. The car was clean, admirably, and a tune-up consisted of the tires and topping up the windshield compartment..

On the disturbing side, the points out the complete failure of at both the state and federal to support the car — not merely by incentives, but by policy. The California Air Board [CARB], the same that initiated the zero-emission in the first place, abandoned the EV1 at the point in time the car proved it meet the board’s requirements. and Cheney then pulled the to hydrogen fuel-cells, a technology both know will be cost-efficient.

The EV1’s were then by GM (GM ) (the cars could be leased — no leasers allowed to keep them), and were sent to the car crusher so all of its success could be destroyed

What are the economic, environmental, and repercussions due to the demise of the EV1? The are gigantic.

Economically, the US is even addicted to foreign oil and sends billion a year to Russia, Arabia, Venezuela, and Iran. The trade deficit and economic have played a major in the US dollar’s 50% devaluation under the administration. America’s current stagnation due to its addiction to high-priced oil is even harder to digest the oil-induced inflationary environment its are currently learning to live

The economic implications of the resulting market sell-off will be by retirees, working people’s plans, and investors for years to

Meanwhile, some analyst are bankruptcy for GM, who switched from EV1’s to Hummers. Meanwhile, of GM employees and entire communities feel the negative effects of consistent reporting of billion losses. It’s interesting to that GM, facing bankruptcy, market share to the hybrids and vehicles Toyota (TM ) and Honda ) developed because of the CARB and seeing its stock price to decade lows, still mention reviving the EV1.

the lack of an electric car in the US has been Some have estimated the US be using 50% less gasoline if the California mandate and EV1 had been to take its natural course. that each gallon of burned in an automobile’s internal engine can emit 15 lbs of CO2 into the well, you do the math.

Politically, just one more nail in the of the American democratic system of The US at this point is more than democratic. The industrial call the all the shots.

If the EV1 is any indication, these industrial (like GM) seem hell-bent on even themselves. Recent administration-supported efforts by Bernanke and show the government is in the process of the country’s mortgage market and soon do the same to the banking — including the investment This will be yet another of federal control (along the wars on terror and drugs) in to take US taxpayer money and it to the small number of well in power.

US capitalism is on its last

All this is very interesting to me I interviewed with the GM engineering during the mid 1980s in Kokomo, They were looking to someone to work on the electric car and wanted to hire me to work on the system. The idea was to reverse the fields during braking re-charging the batteries. Interesting but Kokomo seemed a strange to me, and the GM environment even stranger. The estate agent showing me asked what kind of car I and when I replied that I had a truck he said, and I quote, might work in San Diego, but you had well better get rid of that before you move here!

He was right too. Not long returning to San Diego, I saw on TV Toyota getting smashed in the parking lot of the right there in, you guessed it, Indiana. What a different we might live in today had workers been focused on quality EV1 automobiles rather destroying Japanese imports.

line: Hydrogen fuel technology isn’t gonna It’s a distraction to keep us realizing that electric are possible and WORK. We should be our transportation effort on electric and plug-in automobiles and electrified speed rail systems.

We should build out the electrical to support new energy supplies to these transportation systems wind, solar, and nuclear sources. Just as important, the 50 should band together and for a constitutional convention to dismantle the United States government. We start over with the US Constitution and Bill of Rights to us. We need to take back our government from the fascist who are at this very minute to take total control of it.

The powers that killed the car.

To put this all into Seeking Alpha commenter just pointed out, in a he posted to my article on T. Boone approach. for all the money the US has wasted in it could have instead 100,000,000 hybrid vehicles to US citizens’ gas-guzzling SUVs. this would have not been a much wiser use of US money, but would have cut oil dependency, helped to clean up the atmosphere, saved many and perhaps have rescued the US economy and currency from its oil-dependent death spiral.

Disclosure: The author does NOT own GM, but drives a Toyota truck and stay long energy until the US adopts a comprehensive energy policy.
