Got a little bit of time to play around with a small painting in Photoshop. It’s not quite there, but that’s the beauty of digital. You can obsess and change your mind ad infinitum. I pulled myself away from the computer to see a good, but depressing, movie I’ve been wanting to see for a while, “Who Killed the Electric Car?” It’s really sad how narrow corporate interests repeatedly trump the greater interests of America’s citizens–and the world, for that matter. Everyone in this country needs to see this movie because it answers all the naysayers who contend that electric vehicles aren’t practical. And it’s a real eye-opener how successful these cars were and the facts behind why the “plug” was pulled on them. The hopeful finish of the movie highlights the growing number of people concerned about the environment, along with the high price of gas, and the movement toward energy independence that’s forming. I don’t believe government and corporations are going to be able to tamp down this growing demand, especially not with the promise of hydrogen vehicles. We’ve been disillusioned too much the past few years and most of us are hurting because of the unbridled greed that has become our country’s motto. This site provides some facts on plug-ins, background about the movie, the movement and good links to other sites. I hope you can check it out.
