Political Video of the Day

With all of the global warming talk today, here's the preview for Who Killed the Electric Car?

Over at TCS Daily, Ralph Kinney Bennett has penned a response. His basic argument: It's the battery, stupid. Electric cars actually work well for short distances, living up to all the promises of their proponents. But, ultimately, they can't go very far without needing to be recharged -- and recharging takes forever.

In other words: Who killed the electric car? The Energizer Bunny.

So, as with Robert Samuelson's argument about global warming, the problem here is engineering, not politics.
