The Collapse of Common Sense: Preservation of Big Oil and the Big Three Automakers. In 2003 "FreedomCAR" (Freedom Cooperative Automotive Research) was created as a public-private partnership between the United States Department of Energy, BP America, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, ExxonMobil, Shell Hydrogen, and The United States Council for Automotive Research (USCAR - a partnership among Daimler/Chrysler, Ford Motor Company and General Motors). What are the oil and automotive corporations doing together? What happened to Toyota's RAV4-EV program that produced 100% electric sports utility vehicles (that's right, SUV's!) that are still running, today, at a cost of two cents per mile? Engineer Nevres Cefo shows how Americans are being systematically misinformed and trapped with only one choice for their future transportation needs: the internal combustion engine and liquid fuels. Can we change the course of where we are going and how we get there? Yes we can, and Cefo shows you how to do it.

I picked up this book knowing nothing about Electric Vehicles. Essentially, the book 'sold' me on electric cars, and I'm very surprised so little people have heard of them. Electric cars are an ... Read full review

If you are interested in alternative fuels, the environment or energy policy, you have to read this book! According to the book, we have had the technology for electric cars for more than a decade. Many of the original Toyota RAV4 electric SUVs are still out on the road running today. Chevron bought up the battery technology on the NiMH battery they use and managed to mothball the technology with added patents so you and I would keep buying gas fueled cars with internal combustion engines. And for the hybrids we are now being offered...guess what? They still use gas and the IC engine with its thousands of parts. Author Cefo argues that releasing the patent on the NiMH battery would lead to 100% electric cars being massed produced. Now we are being told that the lithium ion battery will come to save us and be used for hybrids and/or electric cars. But according to Two Cents Per Mile, the NiMH batteries are far more efficient. The RAV4 electric SUVs still running 10 years later are getting 140+ miles per charge. The book presents a common sense solution to the collusion that is going on between the car and oil industries. If you want a dangerous and expensive hydrogen car that runs on liquid fuel and preserves the oil and car industries liquid fuel model, don't read this book. If you are sick of being ripped off by the richest corporations in the world, get reading.
