Women are Killing the Earth

If we're ever going to get anywhere in the fight against global warming (it's always a fight against something, isn't it?), women need to get their acts together.

According to The Telegraph, UK government chief scientist David King says that women need to fight the urge to love only men who drive sports cars.

Yep. We're responsible. Men only buy sports cars to impress women and women are only impressed by sports cars. In order to fight global warming, hybrids need to become sexy.

Wait, since when were cars actually sexy? Isn't that just a myth that men created so they could buy what they consider "cool" cars? Sure, maybe there are some that like cars. But it's not a dealbreaker, I'm sure. And if it is, why would anyone want to be with someone like that anyway?

Just one woman's humble opinion. But I feel like this is some major digging here. Maybe the problem is more that people make these cars in the first place? Or that no one wants to give up their creature comforts to save the world?

The good/bad news is that we're not alone. Every government has at least one jackass.

Are you kidding? There can be absolutely no debate that a large segment of American men have a propensity to buy sexy cars as an extension of their penises (penii?).

And it wasn't men that made the decision, it was the marketers. Way on back in the 50s - you know, back when men were responsible to drive their wife, 2.5 kids, and dog around.
