General Motors is finally waking up? Will they stop making beasts like this? Hardly, but after 20 years of funding the Heartland Institute, they have just withdrawn their last bit of funding (only $15 000 in their most recent donation) to that heartless outfit, the most active climate-change-denying think-tank in the U.S. and the pet project of the oily Koch brothers, those greedy lying bastards who have done so much to vilify climate scientists like Michael Mann. (see earlier February post here about the "Kochy Boys" and the March one about Mann). GM is hardly going to start preaching conservation but every little step like this helps more and more people see that climate change is for real. There's definitely something blowing in the wind and about bloody time!
