New York City & Lower Hudson Valley Clean Communities, Inc (NYCLHVCC), The Federated Conservationists of Westchester County, Inc (FCWC) and the City of White Plains are co-hosting a two part event during White Plains Earth Week to educate residents of the Lower Hudson Valley on how they can reduce their carbon foot print by switching to electric vehicles.
On April 18, 2012, a special screening of “Revenge of the Electric Car” directed by Chris Paine*, sponsored by BMW of Westchester, was held at the Cinema De Lux in White Plains New York and will feature welcome remarks by Honorable Mayor Tom Roach of White Plains, NY. Chris Paine’s earlier documentary “Who Killed the Electric Car?” (2006) questioned the role of the auto industry and government planners. His follow up documentary “Revenge of the Electric Car” (2011) documents four entrepreneurs from 2007 to 2010 who are fighting to see who will be the first to bring the electric car back in the mist of a global recession.
My interview with Christina Ficcina, Executive Director for the NYC Lower Hudson Valley Clean Cities and leader of this event will talk to the Green Living Guy about the event.
