INTERNAL COMBUSTION How Corruption Fueled Our Oil Addiction and Killed the Alternatives

by | Read by Stephen Hoye

Contemporary Culture • 15.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

" A century before I began typing this page, battery-powered electric automobiles were abundant," Black writes. In a rich, liquid voice Stephen Hoye tells of avaricious businessmen working with a corrupt government to engineer a world that runs on oil and oil alone. Edison and Ford were among the innovators swept aside. The railroads were abandoned. General Motors bought up trolley companies, closed them down, and then sold buses to fill the gap. " This book is not about green," writes Black, " it is about greed." Stephen Hoye doesn't just get angry, he stays angry for 15-and-a-half hours. Nor does he ever constrict his vocal cords, or lose our sympathy. For a solution, look to hydrogen and Honda. B.H.C. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 07]
