    Big 3 tuning in to the green talk

    Big 3 tuning in to the green talk

    Laura Berman
    Tuesday, October 30, 2007

    The new urban talisman lights up Woodward Avenue in neon letters, surprising the downtown-bound driver.

    "Everything Is Going To Be Alright," the letters spell, creating a cheery, literal sign of optimism at a building that used to be a car dealership.
    The nation's eyes are unusually focused on Detroit. A war in the Middle East -- a toxic combination of human toll and high gas prices -- has taken the fun out of big trucks and SUVs.

    Between Al Gore's Nobel Peace Prize, Barack Obama's call for federal emissions standards, and Neil Young retooling an old Lincoln as a 100 mile per gallon electric hybrid car, there's a shift in the environmental winds that even General Motors can no longer ignore.

    From John Dingell to Joe Knollenberg, the Michigan congressional delegation is acknowledging a need to push the automakers toward a greater sense of environmental responsibility.

    Journalist Elizabeth Kolbert ponders "a last chance for Detroit," in the New Yorker this week, concluding that the Big Three may not be totally hopeless.

    I HATE these kind of articles. Where they try to sound like they are supporting the big three, but still make sure they throw in comments like these...


    "There's a shift in the environmental winds that even General Motors (wtf) can no longer ignore."

    "The car is a prototype now, and the battery has yet to be developed."

    "the company that once killed the electric car is now proudly pining for it."

    Yeah I know. That last one is especially ridiculous.
