    "NHTSA has concluded that the crash test damaged the Volt's lithium ion battery and that the damage led to a vehicle fire that took several weeks to develop after the test was completed.
    LOL @ the eco-weenie zeolots defending their holy grail with "gasoline burns too" arguments....

    Get in a fender bender with your Volt while leaving the OFM (organic food market).

    Park the *now simmering* Volt in the garage.

    Take the other car...the Prius... to the scheduled weekend of camping fun at the Hemp Festival.....

    and return to the charred remains of your high tech, solar/geothermal/windmill powered home....

    "There comes a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part, you can't even passively take part. And you've got to put your bodies on the gears, and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus. And you've got to make it stop

    Considering only about eleven Volts have been sold, I doubt it.

    Do you have a smoke detector in your garage? Could you hear it from the other side of the house?

    Wait, you are a Brit, so you probably don't have a master bedroom, great room, two car garage, and kitchen/dinning room like a middle-class American.

    I thought it was a key part of Obama's failed green energy plan with Gov't Motors?

    Yeah it could. If you got into a major accident and decided to do nothing about it for weeks.

    You should really read the whole article before trying to sound more intelligent than someone else.


    "NHTSA is also apparently probing an incident involving a Volt catching on fire while charging."

    Poor Bigoil...like the horse and buggy & harness people at the turn of the 20th Century, they spread rumor after rumor how the new method of getting around was "dangerous".

    They were right of course but it didn't stop a thing. Progress marched forward. New innovations were created for the automobile making it safer and still turning the backs on old Trigger and the family buggy. It turns out people needed to get around faster then. Today people want to get around spending less at the pump. Necessity is the mother of invention.

    The only solution is for BigOil to drop their prices at the pump. Poor Bigoil...they're on the way out.
    DOMA Opinion, Pages 16-17: "The definition of marriage is the foundation of the State’s broader authority to regulate the subject of domestic relations ... the Constitution delegated no authority to the Government of the United States on the subject of marriage and divorce.”... In so Saying, the Highest Court said all the 49 states get to choose yes or no on gay marriage....all 49 of them... Loving v Virginia was about race, not polygamy or homosexuality, etc.

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Duke Energy officials are asking customers who own the company's electric car charging stations to stop using the product after a house fire in Mooresville last month.
    There is no evidence yet that charging electric ObamaMobiles at home represents a fire hazard but it is a definite possibility.

    I suppose if the government shot all the horses in a effort to force citizens to buy a car when the cars were not adequately developed yet then that generation would have objected too.

    Stupidity is the same in any age.
