DETROIT -- While watching the NBA finals tonight, I saw a distubing and unethical 'then and now' ad by General Motors.
One part of the ad said, 'then, Route 66; now no route at all', showing a 10 mpg Hummer off-roading over big rocks in a place like Arizona, and a big Chevy truck thrashing and mud-bogging in a fragile stream for fun.
Trashing landscapes and streams, this is what GM and industry means when they support 'tread lightly' concepts.
GM is irresponsible with this ad. I grew up in a GM town. GM is environmentally irresponsible overall with still too much focus on gas guzzling SUVs, which relates significantly to the company's continued decline.
