The whole idea of the recyclable car is quite foolish. I mean this is going to go forth as a dispossible vehicle. Vehicles that is cheap, has a short life span, and is shortly after distroyed. Which will allow people to buy less expensive vehicles more often. Which means instead fo purchasing 10 cars in a lifetime we might go through 20 cars.

Now think of all the energy required not only to produce more cars but to recycle these cars. I can assure you that the energy consumed in the future will outweigh the waste left behind on todays cars as fas as an impact on the environment goes.

People are so easily lead into this whole "green" movement. Consumerism is what's really going on here, not the well being of the environment.

I like the idea of making a "greener" car. Sometimes I just wonder if that's really what's going on.
