Somewhere I have an article from the NY Times, probably around the 1980’s where they
were pretty much saying … “Hey, when we have to stop production of oil due to Global Warming,
how about subsidizing us for our losses?”
I’m not someone who can speak to the extent of long ago US relationships with Saudi Arabia,
but a little search gives some history –
Saudi Arabia–United States relations refers to the bilateral relations between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United States of America. It is a Special Relationship, which began in 1933 when full diplomatic relations were established. Despite the differences between the two countries—an ultraconservative Islamic absolute monarchy, and a secular, constitutional republic—the two countries have been allies. Former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama have close and strong relations with senior members of the Saudi Royal Family.
And I would say as soon as you see any appearance of the Bush Family you are talking about CIA/MIC.
Possibly same for Obama. And you are looking at what usually ends up as infiltration and interest in
“real estate” over long range. If I recall, as well, what Michael Moore has told us about Saudi money
invested in business/property holdings here in US, it is quite extensive. According to Tom Hartmann the
Military uses 80% of our oil. The intertwining of interests is amazing and carries a lot of possibilities.
There were electric cars 100 years ago – and many cities had electric trolleys - Boston still has them.
But either before the end of WWI or just after, General Motors was very active in destroying much of
public transportation – from trolleys, to overhead railroads, to even buses.

Early Raid Transit in NYC – Elevated Trains
The elevated trains were initially operated with steam engines pulling the cars but by the beginning of the 1900s, electrification was underway, with the wooden coaches being converted for electric operation. The various Manhattan elevated lines were consolidated and eventually leased to the IRT in 1903. Most of the elevated tracks were taken down in the 1940s, with only the Third Avenue Elevated in Manhattan surviving to 1955. The Bronx portion of the 3rd Avenue line survived to April 1973.
The Rise of the Early Electric Car –
During the early years of the “Automotive Age,”—from about 1896 to 1930—as many as 1,800 different car manufacturers functioned in the U.S. While innovators in Europe had been working on battery-powered vehicles since the 1830s, the first successful electric car in the U.S. made its debut in 1890 thanks to a chemist from Iowa. His six-passenger was basically an electrified wagon that hit a top speed of 14 mph.
When Henry Ford introduced the mass-produced and gas-powered Model T in 1908, it symbolized a death blow to the electric car. By 1912, a gasoline car cost only $650 while the average electric roadster sold for $1,750. In 1912 Charles Kettering also invented the first electric automobile starer. Effectively eliminating the hand crank, Kettering’s invention made the gas-powered auto even more attractive to the same drivers who had preferred electric cars.
