I'll bet there is a Subcommittee of Automobile Design at government motors.
If you mean a design team at GENERAL MOTORS, surprise, every car company has one. Or did you think the Patriotic CEO of Ford just poops them out before breakfast?
Then why are there charts that show where we get our oil from (percentage and country)?
I would imagine because certain countries produce more oil than other countries.
I could show you all day long, and you wouldn't believe me. And what makes you think there's only enough for 10 years?
My 10 years comment would be if we shut off our borders to buying foreign oil and coal.
I could care less about short term from a political standpoint. We can wean off oil, it's just going to take time. It will happen. Why must the govt. force it upon us?
Because the population at large has an attention span of about 9 months, and corporations have an attention span of one quarter.
Raising mpg (again) is reasonable? The govt. forces it upon the auto companies. Who pays for all the r&d. Not the govt. (well, they will be now, thanks to gm.)
Poor babies, having to not make soot-belching cars. I weep for them every night, I truly do.
Keep on coming back for the lulz, cause you sure do provide them.
