At a policy conference in the car-free environs of Mackinac Island, United Auto Workers president Ron Gettelfinger said he has come to "believe in the reality of climate change," but lamented that, "Unfortunately, there is an impression among the car-buying public that the Big Three build nothing but gas guzzlers, while Toyota is a division of Greenpeace." Huh. Wonder why that is. The quote is reported in a New York Times story headlined: Detroit Finds Agreement on the Need to Be Green.
