Why would he think the auto manufacturers are there to make fuel efficient vehicles. They are there to produce a product they think the public wants so they can make money. America seems to like big powerful vehicles, look at all of the people on this forum willing to sacrifice a little fuel milage for performance. I am all for the enviroment and new more efficient technology but I am getting tired of this green stuff and hearing about how all of the worlds problems are because of Americans and their big cars.
My plan is to give every object a carbon footprint number. Then everyone is given the same amount of carbon credits to spen how they see fit. The people who want to live in 10,000 square foot houses have a choice between an electric golf cart or public transportation and the ones who live in small houses can have Z/28's, ZR-1's, ect.
