Toyota Not So Green After All

Found a good article coming out in Newsweek concerning Toyota and how really it has changed it's environmentally green stance for a another kind of green the kind we find in greed. We chalk all this up to Toyota and how it is opposing new gas mileage laws and in fact has joined with the three in a lawsuit against California over legislation to reduce global-warming. We need not look far until we quickly realize the green behind Toyota's shift, the Toyota Tundra for instance Toyota's hog getting 14 mpg city. Toyota is not looking for ways to help or improve our environment, Toyota is looking at the bottom line.

    I would suggest that Toyota is helping themselves out by insuring that Detroit autos remain gas guzzlers.Toyota seems to be far ahead of our American auto makers in selling high MPG vehicles. I believe the Japanese think they can help our auto makers fail by hanging on to low cafe standards.

    You could be right my friend in assuming this, what gets me is Toyota is going out of it's way to be an environmental spokesperson. They got right on board with the others on the California lawsuit, I see the head of global warming over at the sierra club is no longer singing their praises.

    Look at the price of oil these days, Americans are going to buy vehicle's that have the lowest gas mileage or they should. You're right if Toyota can get on board as you might say lending a helping hand to the gas guzzler's Toyota will be smiling all the way to the bank.

    With the technology we have today we should be far ahead in making an alternative to the gas hog, it just comes down to the politics of big oil and Toyota will talk green as long as it don't affect the green at the bottom line.

    You are right, Floyd, it ain't easy being green, unless the green is cash.

    That is why we don't have anything today to take the place of the gas hogs, it just comes down to politics and money. With our technology we should have been free from them years ago. Glad to see you around my friend.
