I really like that last statement!
A significant portion of the current "eco" movement is more motivated by profit than by finding workable solutions.
Pass a regulation here and there and the next thing you know; you too could be making millions by planting trees in another country.
*real trees may or may not actually be planted
*void where prohibited by common sense
*at participating legislatures only
Just a couple of points.
I have owned more Fords than other vehicles; I am most
familiar with their operation and maintenance. I generally look at Fords first because I am comfortable with them. However; I currently own a GMC a Dodge and a Kawasaki. No Ford.
I think internal combustion technology is nearing its peak. We don't use
the best technology; usually because it smells worse, or we worry about future availability of parts and maintenance.
And I think there is an view that exhaust smoke = more pollution = lower fuel efficiency
. I really don't think most people realize that diesels get better MPG.
I guess marketing could correct that; but when does marketing really try to educate?
I don't think there are more than a handful of advertisements that use facts and reason to convince you to buy their product.
Expensive cars tend to show that you can enjoy your retirement more or pick up classy women with one of their cars.
Sports cars and small trucks mean that you will have lots of friends that party and get hot scantily clad women.
Mid sized sedans mean a great family life, beautiful wife and precocious children.
The E.D. pills are the best commercials though. If you use Viagra you will have a 3 day old shave and be a problem solver; but there will be NO WOMEN around.
If you chose Cialis; it will give you an outdoor bath fetish. You will be in separate tubs; but at least there will be a great view and a Woman.
