Bob Lutz, Vice Chairman of General Motors is trying his best to downplay a comment regarding climate change he made a few weeks ago. In front of reporters in Texas Bob Lutz dismissed global warming as a "total crock of s---".
He still foolishly tries to defend his comment by saying, in a blog entry titled Talk About a Crock, that his "thoughts on what has or hasnâ€™t been the cause of climate change have nothing to do with the decisions I [he] make to advance the cause of General Motors."
Bob Lutz have also opposed laws that would force automakers to sell smaller cars saying it would be "like trying to address the obesity problem in this country by forcing clothing manufacturers to sell smaller, tighter sizes".
There is no wonder that GM is doing so good financially and falling behind the "green" auto-industry leaders like Toyota (with their Prius) when they have people like Bob Lutz running the company.
