Sometimes I Wish That It Would Rain Here

don't buy a Chrysler

I was beyond incredulous after reading the remarks of Chrysler's cheif economist Van Jolissaint that question the severity and immediacy of global warming. according to the BBC, Jolissaint said that "global warming [is] a far-off risk whose magnitude [is] uncertain." what? you must be joking? I just don't get it. even if he thinks climate change isn't a big concert (which is beyond foolish), the buying public certainly thinks it's a big deal, and it would behoove companies to get "greener," if for no other reason than to appeal to consumers.

Jolissaint went so far as to call the European attitude toward global warming "quasi-hysterical" and akin to that of "chicken little." chicken little? you know what, the sky may not be falling, but it sure is getting hotter, and all you have to do is open your eyes to see some of the effects.
