Big Oil insists it will be the backbone of economy for another 10, 20, even 30 years. Don’t count on it
One in five car buyers ready for an electric vehicle, latest research shows. Nineteen percent of drivers surveyed by IBM's Institute for Business Value (IBV) said that they were either "very likely" or "likely" to consider purchasing an electric-only vehicle when shopping for a new car. This is notable, given that 42 percent of drivers know only "a little" about EVs or have "only heard of them.”
Let’s face it. Oil is killing us.
We are borrowing money from China to import oil from countries that don’t like us, while killing the environment in the process.

Who's buying electric and hybrid cars?
In 1990, China only had 250,000 private passenger cars in the entire country.  Less than two decades later, China has over 11 million private cars on the road with close to 10 million new cars sold each year.  And still only 1% of the population has cars.
Chinese leaders have adopted a plan aimed at turning the country into one of the leading producers of hybrid and all-electric vehicles by 2012, and making it the world leader in electric cars and buses after that.
