11. I couldn't agree with you more
And that is exactly where citizen motivation and appealing to business leaders regarding the true urgency of this crisis comes into play. Which is exactly what Mr. Gore is now doing which is the correct approach. And yes, when I saw the price of this car my mouth dropped, and I do believe it is all part of a plan by government and corporate America to do all they can to keep alternate energy vehicles from becoming too mainstream which is truly ignorant on their part. At this point in time I should be able to go down to my local station and fill up on biofuel, hydrogen, or whatever else "I" wish to fill up on to do my part to preserve this planet... but for all the talk it is nowhere near coming to the public on a mass scale, and that is not good considering the time frame we are working with. The same with solar, electric, and other forms of alternate energy. It is either too expensive, too exclusive, or I can't get it otherwise because these companies are also in part controlled by the very companies working against it, and that again will not change unless the people demand it change.
