You wouldn’t believe how many we had to jump through and environmental and regulators we had to pay off. It was a real

Still, I’m not a green Grinch. Our is entirely powered by an enormous array. My wife has owned a Civic Hybrid since it came out in 2003.

It just turned over miles today. It’s a car.

When it comes to and the environment, I like to think I’m a sensible, practical person. But I buy an electric car if you paid me. Here’s

It’s not a piece of fruit. My buys organic chicken, vegetables, and fruit even they’re way more expensive. better for our health and the animals and I get that.

But a car is the most expensive you own that depreciates – a lot. The we drive meet California’s emission standards. They hurt my family or the chickens. I’m with that.

The car I want to doesn’t come in electric. are two kinds of people in this car people and everyone else. I am a car

I’m very particular about how I get point A to point B. I have no why. Maybe it’s an of my male ego or a character flaw.

Do I think the U.S. government subsidize specific companies Solyndra and Fisker? No. That’s plain idiotic. That’s for capital and private equity with limited partners beaucoup bucks and high tolerance, not for a government that $17 trillion or American taxpayers who pay their bills.

I think we drill, frack, and nuke to our content. I want America to export energy. What I get is why anyone would think an car is in any way greener than a hybrid. not.

I don’t like dumb I guess the bottom line is I don’t like the color for the sake of being green. In words, I don’t like especially fads that are by overblown hypocrites and bad science. In you’re wondering, by “hypocrites,” I Al Gore.
