Sneak Attack – Global Warming and Porsche Envy

Posted by Rob Longenecker on July 15th, 2007

Doron Levin is a writer for the New York Times and for Bloomberg News. You may find his recent Bloomberg News article interesting.

Levin highlights an example of the danger of more government intrusion and interference everywhere. (Will the powers that be ban gunsmoke soon? I know it’s smokeless powder but it puts stuff in the air.) First, they’re after your sports car or SUV. (Where are all those rusting Yugo’s? Will we need them again?)

The desire to ban “unnecessary” or “frivolous boy toys” in favor of uniform mediocrity is an envious point of view of some who think it’s not “fair” that some have more than others. They love it when government punishes success and love it more when they can tie it to the global warming issue for justification.

The article is worth reading in it’s entirety.

Cutting CO2 or a Sneak Attack on Porsche, Ferrari?: Doron Levin If one of the more extreme responses to global warming comes true, driving a sports car anywhere but on a racetrack might be relegated to history’s dustbin.

    “Davies told the Guardian newspaper that “cars designed to go at stupid speeds have to be built to withstand the effects of a crash at those speeds. They are heavier than necessary, less fuel-efficient and produce too many emissions.”

    So does this mean that the piece of crap company Buick Regal I drive goes faster than the 2007 Corvette Z06’s top speed of around 195 mph since it weighs more than the ‘Vette? I’d better get some better tires on that Buick!

    If Mr. Davies’ logic is that convoluted on the basic principle of fast cars = heavy cars I’d love to see him tackle the harder scientific data of greenhouse gases.

    I thought at 1st you were refering to the History Channel’s Universe series about the Earth. Lot’s of comparisons, for some reason to the cycles of the planet to form as it is today to Porshes. It was a very interesting show until the Al Goreons took over for about the last 1/4 of the show and informed us we are all dying and have only about 40 years to 500 million years dispose of our suv’s.
