Auto Alliance Painting Green Efficiency Numbers

“There are 11 million alternative fuel autos on the road today,” exclaims The Alliance for Automobile Manufacturers (AAM) website.

The AAM has a long history of fighting emission standards, so it's no wonder why a headline like “11 million alternative fuel autos on the road today” would jump out at anyone familiar with the Alliance and their not-so-environmentally friendly activities.

Who killed the Hybrid Plug-in? A sequel

For those of you haven’t seen the film Who Killed the Electric Car, the premise is quite simple and by the looks of things, it’s a premise that could repeat itself in the next decade or so.

While big automakers, like Ford, Toyota and GM hang a “hybrid plug-in” carrot in front of our collective nose, they’re fighting tooth and nail in California, and elsewhere, against stricter greenhouse gas emission standards for new vehicles.

RFK Jr: Change Governments -- Not Lightbulbs!

We've all heard the oil industry and the coal industry and their indentured servants in the political process telling us that global climate stability is a luxury that we can't afford – that we have to choose now between economic prosperity on the one hand and environmental protection on the other.

And that is a false choice.
