F_ALK- sorry you feel that way- that was not my intent.
and you’ve got some of the replies jumbled together.
my point was to reflect that the auto industry IS NOT holding back technology. but I’m really getting tired of arguing about it. yes environmentalists push for newer standards, but my point was that these can be easily circumvented if your goal is to cheat. once again my point was lost.
I too care about the environment as a matter of personal responsibility. it is legal here to dump ethylene glycol into the drains here. and I believe it takes on the neighborhood of 100 gallons of water to distill one ounce of anti freeze. now I could dispose of this in the ohio river, but I don’t. I recycle it, not because we need more laws to force me to, but because I choose to. I’m not anti environment - but because I disagree with your methods you insinuate I am. just like when you said I have racist tendencies because I think that if you can’t work you should starve, or even though I am extremely anti government you accuse me of being brainwashed by their propaganda. come on now.
I can see that many of you will not accept anything but your own view of the world. that is fine, you asked my opinion and I gave it. then you said I was wrong and critisized me for it. that’s fine too. I won’t argue, say whatever you believe to be the facts and ignore all those in opposition.
and before you say that I do this too, please bear in mind that I have listened to all of your arguments, and where applicable acknowledged my mistake.
