I have been repeatedly struck by the irony of the mega-car companies lately. During my 3 minute commute to work I catch bits and pieces of stories, and usually end up sitting in my car to allow a journalist to finish a sentence, and occasionally I’m lucky enough to hear an entire story. However, these past few weeks of Save the Poor Begging Polluting Manufacturers (that can’t afford a car, so they have to use their private jets) has really got me thinking… and quite honestly I’m shocked that the car industry has been able to survive as long as it has.
I propose that the car manufacturers be required to buy (with our tax dollars of course) all old, rusty, leaking cars out of junk yards and off of peoples’ front lawns in order to design the new and improved model of non-polluting, energy efficient vehicles. Let’s get creative folks!
