In 2006, the electric vehicles (EVs) market was effectively dead, but today EVs are making a comeback across the country!
And while EV owners can't stop raving about the newest models, Big Oil and its allies have been trying to spread ridiculous stories smearing EVs and hybrids.1
It's important that we learn the EV facts -- that's why Sierra Club supporters across the country will be attending local watch parties for the new film Revenge of the Electric Car this week and next.
Revenge of the Electric Car is the new film from Chris Paine, director of Who Killed the Electric Car? It chronicles the global resurgence of EVs and follows the exciting story of four men racing to bring them to the general public.
Attending a watch party is a lot of fun. It's a great chance to meet other Sierra Club supporters and talk about ways to move beyond oil in your community. Some watch parties will even have EVs on hand that you can check out.
Big Oil's grip on the car industry has led to disastrous consequences. Oil contributes more to global climate disruption than any other fuel -- and gasoline-powered vehicles are a major reason why. They also create smog and other forms of air pollution, leading to health problems.
Many Americans have no choice but to drive, which is why a switch to EVs is a key part of the path toward reducing our emissions and our addiction to oil. Even with today's electricity sources, EVs are significantly cleaner than nearly all conventional vehicles -- and will only get cleaner as we shift to cleaner sources of power.
Thanks for all you do to protect our environment.
