On the same day TTAC ran Martin Schwoerer’s review of the C1 ev’ie, comes word that the diminutive EV has been named the official rental car of the UN Climate Conference in Copenhagen. Apparently the auto rental firm Sixt ordered a bunch of the ev’ies, becoming the first car rental company with electric options. And of course, it just happened to make them available in Copenhagen in time for the conference, so delegates would have an alternative to the Climate Express. Sadly, none of the delegates were environmentally aware enough to arrive on electric airplanes.

    Apparently the CO2 output of this thing is going to be more than the country of Switzerland in 2006. However, I'm supposed to unplug my TV everytime I turn it off to "save" the world.

    The hypocrisies of the AGW crew know no bounds. The hypocrisies of many people in politics and the upper levels of industry is pretty boundless. Case in point: the number of hawks in government who just happen to be draft dodgers, or facilitators of such. I'd also be hard pressed to call some of the people attending Copenhagen to be particularly supportive of measures to curb climate change. My own country is attending---probably in a limo---and we've been labelled, rightfully, as perhaps the least helpful, most obstructionist nation in the world on the issue.

    How fitting that a car which sweeps its emissions under the rug should be held up as a symbol of a political conference which has been accused of doing the same thing with inconvenient climate change data. What a joke. There is nothing "green" about any of this.

    It would have been marvelous if the transoceanic hypocrites and parasites flew there in electric planes. With a 300 mile or so flight range.
