Bring Electric Cars to Pittsburgh

My friend Chris Paine made a great documentary film back in 2006, "Who Killed the Electric Car?"  Now Chris, like the electric car itself, is back.  There's a sequel in the works:  "Revenge of the Electric Car."  The film will be released this year.  Want to see it in Pittsburgh?  Tell the filmmakers.  Among many other great things, they're making great use of social media to get the word out.

Thanks Michael! We were in high school together when peak oil hit the USA and OPEC embargoed oil for first time. Long lines at gas stations, odd and even fill up days, we all remember! Out of that came the first modern efficient gas cars. Your family was first I knew to own an imported Japanese car - the Honda Civic. Very cool as it ushered in a whole new generation of cars. Now, faced with global peak oil and increasing demand, electric cars are here to start replacing gas cars in urban environments. Long over due and our new film showcases some of the pioneers. Hope to premiere film around Earth Day...Folks can sign up on our website.

Yay. Loved this movie. By which I mean, hated it, or rather it made me very angry. I just hope there's enough actual revenge in the works to merit a "revenge of" movie.
