I never read the entire original article. I read a paragraph or two and stopped because of the idiocy. The rebuttal was good though. Thanks for posting.

Whole one-sided off-the-wall incomplete opinions have a tremendous affect on public mind-sets and influences (or lack of) while they are not the "whole" picture, which is what that Forbes article did. I am not much of a writer to tell the other part of some-ones' incomplete opinion, but happily passed on the rebuttal.

Just like when AC was invented, there was propaganda by DC companies about the dangers and the technology never being safe enough.

I'm reading a biography on Nikola Tesla BTW. I keep seeing parallels between then and now. To think we're having very similar argument points repeated over and over just with different inventions and items. The illusive fact that it is safer, cleaner, and more efficient doesn't matter to most people when it conflicts with their accepted view.

Thanks for sharing the article. I see stuff like this many times over with all the Ethanol research I do. Electric cars are getting a lot of flack these days and every article that reveals the truth about the matter helps.
