Solar can power electric cars. The problem is the price of solar which big oil companies keep high thru lobbying. This is a time when govt has to step in and bring down the price of solar. They should require mandates at the state level to have solar power plants or wind. Eventually, we could get clean energy if we have a good adminitration, but I've been waiting for 35 years for a good/honest/non-corrupt President. The eyewitness accounts tell the whole story about the responsibility of BP and their negligence. People have actually died here and workers warned BP management weeks before the explosion that the riser was leaking due to not using cement. It's also ironic that Goldman Sachs, whose former chairman is a BP man, and Tony Hayward both dumped all the shares when the riser started leaking weeks before the explosion. Don't tell me you think that's just good luck? They knew they should have used mud instead of sea water and that there was going to be a disaster. Come on. Just do some research but not by watching main stream media. That's like spraying black paint in your eyes. There are some good documentaries. Black Wave about the Exxon Valdez is really disturbing. It is strangely similiar to the current disaster. Exxon hired people people off the streets to wash rocks that just got tainted after the next wave of oil. This is the best a billion dollar company can do. They had the workers use methods like BP today. Now all the workers have respirtory issues, brain damage, and nervous system problems. This happened because of the oil fumes and guess what the dispersants used. The good old EPA approved these dispersants which are now considered toxic and cause cancer. Exxon and the EPA actually told people it was fine to swim in water that contained the dispersants and eat fish in that area too. There are several workers and fisherman sick from this cleanup and the dispersants. Now, the EPA finally banned that dispersant, but is using another one this time around. As you see workers are getting sick again during this oil spill too and we will see this horrible problem repeat itself. These oil companies only care about PR, saving face and will do everything in their power to hide the truth. Keep in mind that Haliburton helped use the sea water instead of the mud which caused this diaster and they also are vested heavily in the cleanup company that BP uses. Something isn't right here.
