Nissan Rocks My World

Carlos GhosnFinally an auto maker has rolled out a long-term strategy for manufacturing cars that makes sense. Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn became my hero this week when he announced Nissan’s plan to build electric cars en masse by 2010. The first will be for governments in the US and Japan, but by 2012, they plan to market them to the public. While other auto makers are offering little more than lip service about reducing automobile emissions by 10, 20 or even 30 percent, Ghosn seems to understand that with more people driving around the globe, the goal to reduce emissions should realistically be 100 percent.

I went to read the NPR site this evening (they have been doing some amazing reporting from China this week) expecting to be saddened by what I read. The first thing that caught my eye though was some good news for a change.

Even if you don’t believe in global warming, how can you not think that “clean energy” is a good thing?
