The Yes Men were in the news recently for a hoax that put the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's lame position on climate change under the spotlight. This week, Move On and Plug In America are pushing an online campaign to get Toyota to stop funding the Chamber's anti-climate lobbying. The campaign resulted in a large gallery on Flickr that shows Toyota customers calling on the automaker "to stop opposing clean energy" and asks people to write letters to the editor. Plug In America president Dan Davids

Say what you want about electric cars, they can go for a pretty penny on eBay. Recently, electric versions of Toyota's RAV4 have sold for $60,000-$70,000 (way up from the original list price of around $40,000, which also got ten grand or so in tax credits).

As the only somewhat mass-produced, full-size electric vehicle still kicking around that was made by a major auto manufacturer, the RAV4 EV is a unique automobile.

The fate of the General Motors electric vehicle, the EV1, has, literally, been documented all over the place. But the fate of electric vehicles from another major automobile manufacturer has been less publicized. Perhaps that's because, unlike GM's EV1 crushing policy, Toyota has announced it will keep all of its RAV4 EVs that are still running on the road "as long as they are safe and it is practical to do so" and "as long as they are sustainable". Toyota said last week that RAV4 EVs can contin
