The Chevy Volt: Foolish Government Project or GM's Saving Grace? (The Atlantic Wire) 2.8.2010 Yahoo: Opinion/Editorial
The Atlantic Wire - Last week, to much fanfare, General Motors announced the sticker price of the Chevrolet Volt. At $41,000, many wondered if the extended-range electric sedan would catch on. The vehicle's electric battery stores enough charge to go 40 miles and then the gas engines takes it an additional 300 miles. After a $7,500 federal tax credit, the price drops to $33,500. Will the vehicle succeed in the marketplace? A number of intelligent voices are disputing the car's worth:

Shale gas: Hope for our energy future 2.8.2010 Washington Post: Op-Eds
You probably have never heard of oilman George Mitchell, but more than anyone else, he has changed the global energy outlook. In 1981, Mitchell's small petroleum company faced dwindling natural gas reserves. He proposed a radical idea: drill deeper in the company's Texas fields to reach gas-bearing shale rock more than a mile down. Because the gas was tightly packed, most engineers believed it was too costly to extract profitably. But after nearly two decades of trying, Mitchell proved doubters wrong. The result: The world has far more available natural gas than anyone suspected.

Low voltage 1.8.2010 Washington Post: Editorials
PRESIDENT OBAMA was back in Michigan recently, breaking ground on a plant that will make batteries for the Volt, the plug-in hybrid electric car forthcoming from government-owned General Motors. The Energy Department paid half the factory's $300 million cost, using funds from a $2.4 billion advanced vehicle technology grant program in the president's economic stimulus plan. The administration says that this is a smart bet on the green economy of the future. Skeptics argue global production capacity for advanced batteries is already rapidly outstripping demand. Roland Berger Strategy Consultants predicts a job-destroying "massive consolidation" five years from now.
