ABSTRACT
The article discusses the Chevy Carbon-Reduction program of General Motors (GM) which aims to spend up to 40 million U.S. dollars from 2010-2015 offsetting about eight million metric tones of carbon dioxide. The author describes the program as a phony save-the-planet campaign, which is only 0.004 percent of total emissions over five years. He considers the program as a little more than a 40 million U.S. dollars wealth transfer from consumers via GM to anti-consumer radical environmentalists and their allies.
