There is amazing GREEN documentary festival running on www.cultureunplugged.com , it will amaze you, inspire you and move you when you realize what is happening to our environment as a whole , and how we humans are increasing our own footprints, destroying the planet and not realizing that we have become unconscious consumptive animals. We need to change.

Paine is a talented director and has a hard hitting attack done with style and tongue in cheek about how we are destroying the environment and the answer being in $100,000.00 electric cars while the Chevy and the Nissan electric are already taking orders.
My main question is mostly about how all of these vehicles did in crash tests and how much damage is done to this engine and the costs of the repairs (if they will be covered by insurance and if so, what it will do for average consumers)
