Added the following to the first post:

2016 Annual Evaluation of Hydrogen Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle Deployment and Hydrogen Fuel Station Network Development; California Air Resources Board; 2016.
Online at http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/zevprog/ab ... t_2016.pdf

I've also added a new category titled "Beyond the Car: New Urbanism, Smart Growth, Public Transit, etc.", and moved some other listings into it.

Added the following to the first post:

"Street Fight: Handbook for an Urban Revolution"; Sadik-Khan, Janette, and Solomonow, Seth; 2015. Written by the former (2007-2013) transportation commissioner of New York City under Michael Bloomberg and her PR person in that post, the book details the steps taken over that period to redesign New York City's streets to better serve pedestrians, bike riders and transit users while also improving traffic flow and safety. A real-world 'Complete Streets' how-to manual for reclaiming asphalt from cars, adding public plazas (including closing Broadway between Times and Herald Squares to cars), bike and bus lanes, bike share, pedestrian safety improvements, etc. it also details the pushbacks and often over-the-top claims of opponents of various aspects of the moves, and how that affected the plans. She also describes similar efforts in other cities around the world, both those that she borrowed ideas from, and others where she's consulted since leaving her post. Sadik-Khan says she had a sign over her desk during her tenure that read "To plan is human, to implement, divine," and she managed to implement more change to the physical fabric of NYC in a shorter period of time than anyone since Robert Moses.

It isn't specifically on EVs, just why people should be driving them.

The Oil Kings: How the U.S., Iran, and Saudi Arabia Changed the Balance of Power in the Middle East. Written by Andrew Scott Cooper in 2012.

It has been the greatest transfer of wealth from one country (the U.S. of course) to others in world history.

Definitely interesting reading, and I usually like reading only WWII books. I got it from my local library, but it is available online too.

I still can't figure out why Duke Energy and the others who just spent $22 million or more trying to keep PV solar away from individuals (Florida Amendment 1 which was recently defeated) aren't jumping at the opportunity to convert people to EVs.

I'll be happy to add it in the 'related' section. Do you want me to use the first two sentences as your review, or would you like to write a somewhat longer one going into a little more detail? Alternatively, I can use a review from amazon etc.

Wow, it would be great if I could contribute! And thanks to your efforts too.

I'll say:

The Oil Kings explains the secret agreements between the U.S. government, specifically then-President Nixon and then-Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, and Iran and Saudi Arabia in the 1970's. These policies have contributed to the greatest transfer of wealth from one country (the U.S. of course) to others in world history, and the book helps people realize how the U.S. arrived at the position, some would say predicament, it is in now.

Definitely interesting reading, and I usually like reading only WWII books. I got it from my local library, but it is available online too.

I've added it - take a look at the first post in the topic, last entry, and let me know if everything's how you want it to be.

It sounds great, thanks so much.

I'm hoping if people read it they might follow-up with a comment here too.

You're welcome. I was surprised way back when that there wasn't one here already, so figured I might as well start one.
