Explosive. Edwin Black [author of Internal Combustion] has produced an explosive, eye-opening exposť of the corporate forces that have for more than a century sabotaged the creation of alternative energies and vehicles in order to keep us dependent on oil. There is enough truth in this book to revolutionize our way of life.-- Max Wallace, author _American Axis: Henry Ford, Charles Lindbergh, and the Rise of the Third Reich_

Though I disagree with his hawking of hydrogen cars (since it takes a lot of energy to get that hydrogen first....), still worth watching. (Instead, watch about the COMPRESSED AIR CAR for instance--zero emissions.)
