Who Killed The Electric Car?

This afternoon on my KMOX show, I talked with Chris Paine, director of the documentary "Who Killed The Electric Car?."

Paine owned a General Motors EV-1 and explained what it was like to drive, how far it could go, how it was recharged, and whether it was really better environmentally, since coal had to be burned to provide the electricity to recharge the car. We also talked about other alternative vehicle energy sources, including hydrogen fuel cells and hybrids.

Listen to the conversation here.
