This week, I pre-taped an interview for about 10 minutes with Robert F. Kennedy Jr, co-host of the Air America program, Ring Of Fire. The show airs Oct. 8 and Oct. 9, the weekend after next.

After that interview, Kennedy released the following comment about PHEVs:

"We should have a national program to promote plug-in hybrid cars running on electricity and biofuels. Since we're not getting leadership on this from the White House or the Energy Department, I'm happy that initiatives are coming from entrepreneurial groups like and from state and local campaigns."

Kennedy is Senior Attorney at the Natural Resources Defense Council, President of the Waterkeeper Alliance and author most recently of "Crimes Against Nature" (HarperCollins 2004). (We've added the endorsement to "What people are saying about Plug-In Hybrids and CalCars' PRIUS+ Strategy" at<­kudos.html.

Ring of Fire (theme song by Johnny Cash) is hosted by Kennedy and Mike Papantonio. The show will air Saturday, October 8 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. EST and will be rebroadcast at the same time on Sunday Oct. 9 in most markets. You can find a listing of local Air America Radio affiliates at --and listen to the show online at that site. Within a few days of the broadcast, we'll have a pointer to the permanent archive for the show.
