When Oil Companies Rule

-- by Dave Johnson

This is what happens when oil companies dominate an economy ... and media career paths.

Story in my local paper today: Electric car sales far from electrifying and likely to stay low

Sales so far have been microscopic, and they're likely to stay that way for some time because of limited supplies.

GM sold 250 to 350 Chevy Volts this month, and Nissan's sales totaled fewer than 10 Leaf sedans in the past two weeks.

OK, now with the stage set, with the public believing that electric cars are a total flop, something they would NEVER want to look at, comes the reason:

It will be well into 2012 before both the Volt and Leaf are available nationwide. And if you're interested in buying one, you'll need to get behind the 50,000 people already on waiting lists.

... because it's too crowded.

When oil companies rule they spread the religion of war, the religion of blood for oil.
