Chief U.N. climate scientist Rajendra Pachauri, who shared last year's Nobel Peace Prize, said last month that "I am having nightmares" about the prospect of the low-cost car.
Take a Billion Indians who are bicycling or walking around and sell them CO2 and CO emitting cars.
That is funny.

That is very humorous. Just think, all those payment plans for 5 years, all that accrued interest, all that oil that will need to be consumed, all the insurance premiums to be paid. Neat way to get all those Indians to be consumers, and become in debt like most everyone in the west.
If the Indians dressed like clowns, I wonder how many could fit into that car.

I haven't checked the 'newer' Mini Cooper range in the safety department, but the old ones were deathtraps, so I'd never want to be behind the wheel (or as a passenger) in something like that.. granted it sounds better than having the family shunted around in mopeds and shopping baskets like E.T. though, and emissions/economy of a single car over 2-3 mopeds (which I doubt are of the highest caliber either) isn't such a bad trade.
