Just in time for Veteran’s Day weekend comes a major motion picture that shows how the world’s drivers will end their reliance on Big Oil – and, I and many others believe, stop wars fueled by our thirst for petroleum.

Revenge of the Electric Car opens in Michigan this weekend, and movie Director Chris Paine will be joining thousands of electric car believers here for the opening screenings!

“In 2006, as many as 5,000 modern electric cars were destroyed by the major car companies that built them. Today, less than 5 years later, the electric car is back… with a vengeance,” boasts the movie’s producers.

“In Revenge of the Electric Car, director Chris Paine takes his film crew behind the closed doors of Nissan, GM, and the Silicon Valley start-up Tesla Motors to find the story of the global resurgence of electric cars. Without using a single drop of foreign oil, this new generation of car is America’s future: fast, furious, and cleaner than ever.

With almost every major car maker now jumping to produce new electric models, Revenge follows the race to be the first, the best, and to win the hearts and minds of the public around the world.”

Remember and honor all veterans this weekend, especially those of our recent wars in the Middle East.

We will defeat Big Oil, slash pollution and revive Midwestern automotive communities!

This story is so exciting someone has made a movie about it!
