Ont om tid idag, så jag pekar bara på ett citat som The Good Human hittat. General Motors vice ordförande, Bob Lutz, förklarade, bakom stängda dörrar med en grupp journalister, att när det gäller att göra miljövänligare bilar så drivs han mer av önskan att ersätta beroendet av utländsk olja än av "koldioxid-argumentet". Global warming, sa han, is a "total crock of ****". Han verkar ha hängt med.
Uppdatering: Lutz försvarar sig i GMs egen blogg:
"It amazes me sometimes what kinds of things seem to “catch on” out there.
An offhand comment I made recently about the concept of global warming seems to have a lot of people heated, and it’s spreading through the Internet like ragweed. But I think that the people making a big deal out of it are missing the real point. My beliefs are mine and I have a right to them, just as you have a right to yours. But among my strongest beliefs is that my job is to do what makes the most business sense for GM.
Never mind what I said, or the context in which I said it. My thoughts on what has or hasn’t been the cause of climate change have nothing to do with the decisions I make to advance the cause of General Motors. My opinions on the subject — like anyone’s — are immaterial. Really. The point is not why and how did we get where we are, it’s what are we going to do to get where we’re going." Fortsättning här.
