General Motors has decided to pull its electric cars from the market in California. What I find so sad about this situation is that it seems no one cares about clean air.

I may not go so far as to say you’re supporting terrorism, but I will say that you are supporting the destruction of our air and water supplies. Call me a tree hugging hippy, but when your grandchildren miss school because of air quality (as they already do in Mexico City) you have no one to blame but yourself.
