ZOOM: The Global Race to Fuel the Car of the Future : Carson and Vaitheeswaran, award-winning correspondents for The Economist, show why and how geopolitical and economic forces are compelling the linked industries of oil and autos to change as never before. Drawing on years of industry research - including dozens of interviews with motor and energy executives, top policymakers, and latter-day Fords and Edisons - Carson and Vaitheeswaran explain: How Toyota became the world's largest automaker through innovation and superior performance. Why American politicians have, for decades, failed to address our energy issues and global warming - and how grassroots movements, along with individual entrepreneurs, innovators, and outsiders, are making real reform possible. How these Green revolutionaries are creating new products powered by hydrogen, electricity, biofuels, and digital technology. As political leaders debate our energy, environmental, and economic future, ZOOM offers a lucid and visionary portrait of what that future can be. Abridged on 3 compact discs. Read by Vijay V. Vaitheeswaran.
