Creator of THE PLAN calls the continued marketing of gas-guzzling Toyota Sequoias, Honda Pilots, and Cadillac Escalades a life and death issue


SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, CA - October 19, 2008: Best selling author Edwin Black was the key speaker at the Western Automotive Journalists' Future Fuels and Propulsion Systems Symposium in the San Francisco Bay Area this past Wednesday night. Edwin discussed his latest book, THE PLAN, and a possible catastrophic oil crisis that awaits the United States unless preemptory action is taken soon.

In his remarks, Edwin was highly critical of auto manufacturers’ purposeful decisions to block the distribution in America of efficient, environmentally-friendly vehicles in favor of cars and trucks that keep us addicted to foreign oil from “people that want to kill us.”
