“Don’t believe in the CO2 theory,” says the VP of one of America’s Big Three Automakers. Despite 99% of scientists being in agreement that when humans heat something—a house, a car, a factory—it heats its surroundings.

That said, he can believe whatever he wants, as long as he wakes up and smells the green market: if they owned a Volt, 80% of American drivers would never have to buy gas. From NY Times: Chevrolet Volt is expected to be the icing on General Motors’ 100th birthday cake this week. The much-promoted sedan, which will operate as an electric car in typical local driving, is intended to provide a jump-start for the company’s second century.
