That the planet is in danger is not a secret anymore. And about global warming every one knows, actually every one fill it! Who’s to blame? Well, according to our distinguished Congress members the sports cars are the main reason! Is true that the CO2 emission is a problem for everyone, but from here to ban a brand is a long way to go!

Europe will be the first continent considering banning fast, powerful cars. For them a Porsche or a Ferrari, cars that produce too much CO2, are a vulgar symbols of affluence. So banning them will have two benefits: saving the planet and cutting economic inequality.

But the European Parliament goes even further: they want to prohibit every car that 162 kilometers (101 miles) an hour. That’s ridiculous! We will all have to drive Smart! Now to be serious for a moment: I am very curious to see how many of the parliament and congress members will quit their limousines and start riding a bike? How many of them will give up luxury for saving the problem. I think we all know the answer of this question!

The proposed ban would take effect in 2013. Davies told the Guardian newspaper that ``cars designed to go at stupid speeds have to be built to withstand the effects of a crash at those speeds. They are heavier than necessary, less fuel-efficient and produce too many emissions.’’

So, my distinguished members of the congress lets try to find real solution to this problems. I do not say that CO2 emission is not a problem, but, for example how about those big plants and factories? How many of them are you going to ban? Especially if you own some of them?

Davies is an idiot. Sure sprts cars are less fuel efficient etc, but over a 12 month period I would assume that the average ferrari is driven way less than the average Astra or Golf. To me that would indicate them being far less of a problem than the mere numbers would indicate.
