L.A. Times reports Jay Leno’s New Show to Include a Green Car Segment.
“One idea for a recurring comedy bit includes a ‘green-car challenge,’ in which celebrities would race electric or hybrid cars. Tom Cruise has already asked whether he could do some practice runs before competing, Leno said. (The host told him practice runs are forbidden.)”
Even NPR’s Planet Money show had to admit that destroying functional old cars so consumers can get into more debt buying a new car is controversial. It’s like paying farmers not to grow crops and to slaughter millions of pigs during the Great Depression to keep food prices up.
