Transcript

  • 1.
    • You probably experienced polution, it’s the smog and other contaminants that float in the air we breathe.
      • Alert, today the level of pollution in the air is high.
    • In some cities around the world such as Los Angeles, Mexico City and China, you can hear radio or TV alerts like the following...
      • Children and the elderly should not go outside,
      • Those who practice an outdoor sport should not do so,
      • People with asthma should carry their inhalers at all times,
      • The rest should avoid going out, or wear a mask when doing so.
  • 2.
    • To solve this situation, a solution was created some 10 years ago.
  • 3.
    • In 1996, the first electric cars were produced, the EV1 (Electric V ehicle 1). T hese were made in the USA by General Motors and started to traverse the roads of California.
  • 4.  
  • 5.
    • These were fast cars, reaching 0 to 65mph in less than 9 seconds!
    • They were silent !
  • 6.
    • They did not produce any type of pollution, they didn’t even have a tail pipe.
  • 7.
    • They could easily recharge at home from any 110v outlet, or at the mall; you even had preferred parking if you had one of these .
  • 8.
    • How was this possible? Why did it happen?
    • Ten years later these cars from the future disappeared.
    • In the first place you could not buy these cars, you could only lease them and when the lease was finished you did not have the option to buy them.
    • General Motors took back all the EV1s, in spite of the opposition of its users (on the t-shirt you can read: Save the EV1)
    • and later…
  • 9.
    • … DESTROYED…
  • 10. … ALL THESE CARS!!!
  • 11.
    • In 1997 , Nissan presented the electric model Hypermini in a Tokyo show.
    • The city of Pasadena (California
    • USA ) purchased these vehicles for some of their city employees.
    It was well accepted for its easy parking ability as well as adaptability around the city.
  • 12.
    • The city tried to purchase the cars from Nissan, but Nissan refused the offer.
    ...DESTROY THEM !
    • In the year 2006, the lease expired and the city of Pasadena needed to return the cars to Nissan.
    • Nissan recovered all the cars to later...
  • 13.
    • In 2005, all the lease contracts expired.
    • This electric 4x4 was a high quality vehicle and was well accepted by its users.
    • Toyota inmediatly recovered all the leased vehicles to later...
    • In 2003, Toyota decided to halt the production of the RAV4-EV.
    • (EV – Eléctric Vehicle)
    DESTROY THEM! !
  • 14.
    • Finally VICTORY! Toyota authorized those who had leased the RAV4-EV vehicles to buy them.  .
    • But then some US citizens got organized:
    • They created the “ DontCrush ” association to try to save the RAV4‑EV .
    • This association pressured Toyota during a 3-month period.
  • 15.
    • He was arrested and put in jail with a sentence of 22 years and 8 months for destroying 3 Hummers (American cars that consume a lot of gasoline).
    • While electric vehicles are destroyed, those using gasoline are well protected as we can see in the following:
    • In June of 2001, Jeffrey Luers, a 23-year old American activist for the defense of nature, had a sad experience.
    • He wanted to espress himself this way to make people realize the danger that these monsters represent to our planet.
  • 16. The lobbies of the oil companies don’t want electric vehicles to survive... ...they want to keep up the oil rage in the middle east, all to protect the oil companies; they will continue to kill and destroy anything that get in their way, including us, with their polluting vehicles killing all the people on our planet!!!
  • 17.
    • Do you know the snowball effect?
    • Send this to 10 of your friends and have them send it to ten of theirs, and that way you will help spread the news around the world.
    • Action - 1: If you find this information helpful, then forward it to someone you know!
    • From now on there will be millions of people who will ask the question: Why are these electric cars made and then destroyed ?
    • Action - 2: Make the next vehicle you purchase an electric or at least a hybrid; demand from the dealer for it.
    • Do you want to breathe fresh air? Then do your part and forward this! The lobbyists are not as almighty as they seem to be.
  • 18.
    • SPREAD THE WORD !!!
    LET YOUR FRIENDS KNOW!!! MAKE OTHERS AWARE !!!
    • Together we can fight for our rights to breathe clean air!.
    FIGHT TO SURVIVE!
