Honda's "Evironmentology" means fighting greenhouse gas regulations

“Environmentology” is Honda's buzzword for its commitment to the environment. To quote Honda's environment statement:

“Honda will pursue challenging goals for the conservation of the global environment. As a responsible member of society whose task lies in the preservation of the global environment…”

While Honda's word are commendable (and I am big fan of their hybrid line-up), their actions on the environment are much less so.

Scientists Suggest that Swindle Fudged Data

Two more scientists have stepped forward to criticize the U.K. TV documentary, the Great Global Warming Swindle , for misleading viewers with unsubstantiated conclusions about climate change.

Ooooh -- that sinking feeling!

While the continents and oceans have absorbed much of the carbon dioxide that humanity has pumped into the atmosphere so far, they won't be able to keep up with the expected rise in greenhouse-gas emissions over the next several decades.  Recent studies suggest that current estimates about natural absorption are too optimistic: Earth's climate by century's end could be on average up to 1.5 degrees C (2.7 degrees F.) hotter than current “business as usual” projections suggest.

The Toyota Technique: Talking Out of Both Sides of Your Mouth

Toyota, the world's new number one automaker has been winning praise far and wide for the fuel efficiency of its fleet. And Toyota Vice President Josephine Cooper said in a recent TV interview that “Toyota has long supported increasing fuel economy standards for vehicles, which means increasing CAFE [Corporate Average Fuel Efficiency] standards.”

This would be noble if it were true.
