by Holly Richmond. In 2006, the documentary Who Killed the Electric Car? became the must-see movie for clean energy fans, car freaks, and Teva-wearing conspiracy theorists. Today it’s almost hard to imagine a world not obsessed with the Nissan Leaf.

Watch the trailer, especially if you like chanting monks: Social media buzz builds anticipation: Filmmakers wouldn’t release the trailer until the film had 10,000 Facebook fans, which happened Friday, reports GOOD . Sites like Jalopnik , Plug-In Cars , Green Optimistic , and even Grist appealed to readers to “like” the page and speed up the trailer’s release. Sex appeal and electric cars: Paine calls the Tesla Roadster (which he drives) “a very sexy EV,” naming it one of the factors in the EV ...

The Poor Always Pay: The Electoral Crisis in Haiti 14.12.2010 Common Dreams: Views
by Beverly Bell

The start of Haiti’s most recent crisis came with ample warning. Most Port-au-Prince residents scurried to their homes mid-afternoon last Tuesday, certain of the violence and chaos which would ensue once the electoral council announced which two presidential candidates would make it to the run-offs.

By nightfall, gunfire ricocheted around the capital and other towns.

Gas Prices Are Going Up, Folks 13.12.2010 GOOD
Ever since that incredible summer of $4 gasoline ended, prices have been quietly creeping up again. Before the year is out, they're likely to hit their highest levels since 2008.   USA Today reports : Nationwide, a gallon of regular unleaded gas averaged $2.977 on Friday and more than $3 a gallon in 20 states. That's up nearly 10 cents the past week and 34 cents higher than December 2009, AAA spokesman Troy Green says. Benchmark crude oil opens today at $88.37 a barrel. If crude crosses $90 for the first time since 2008 and continues to rise, as many industry experts forecast, the average price of regular unleaded could hit $3.15 or higher by year's end. Gasoline is already at or near that in California, Connecticut, Maine, New York, Rhode Island and Washington. Of course, compared to other countries, the price of gas here is still incredibly cheap, largely because our gas tax is so low . I'm actually an advocate of putting a $4 floor under gas prices ...
