Hypocrites?

I am a car guy. I am also somewhat if an independent thinker. I think this whole "Green" movement is scary in that it is very misdirected, and people are following it under false pretenses. So, I can't help but wonder if the people that made this commercial:



Aren't just a little hypocritical when they also make this car.

Don't get me wrong, I think the Audi R8 is an awesome automobile. I just think it's hypocritical to claim title to the green movement, and in the same breath, make a car that goes 190 MPH, only seats 2 people, and gets considerably less than 20 MPG. I won't comment on CO2 emissions, because I do not believe that CO2 is any kind of a pollutant.

The other thing that worries me about this commercial, is how far away from that reality are we?

I saw that commercial. It was incredibly irritating.

The most offensive thing about it is that they will soon be doing that sort of crap here. We have mandatory recycling and they're going to start searching cans and fining people who don't sort properly.

If it gets to be that way, we need to storm the halls of Congress with torches, pitchforks, and firearms. I'll hang them from the nearest lamp post.
