After receiving 70 billion dollars in funds approval from the government for a high speed rail track, not one bulldozer or shovel has touched the ground. There is yet another delay, due to some legal hyper-technicality involving the additional land that the new track will take, if you read the mainstream news. In plain English, the delay means that deals are being made, while government contractors lick their chops at the prospect of even more money for nothing.

It’s baaaack! The electric car is charging its way onto the freeways and Chris Paine, our guest tonight, documents the vehicle’s resurrection by GM (who killed off the EV1), Nissan and Tesla along with Reverend Gadget aka Greg Abbott’s retro-fitted electric cars which use the bodies of Boxters and other sports cars to house rechargeable batteries. In Revenge of the Electric Car, Paine takes us through the death of the EV1 to the return of the electric car, spurred as much by public demand as by rising gas costs, corporate rivalry, and in some cases the creators’ desire to redeem themselves or to be heroes.
