put your money where your mouth is- going green means spending green

I don't get it- I admit I don't get it ! Watching CNBC coverage of the Auto show and seeing and hearing phrases like the Hybrid fad is over and that due to Hybrids represented 1.3 % of total auto sales last year ( selling about 200,000) that companies like Toyota are showcasing their full size trucks instead

Are we that short term thinking ? The Buzz since oil has been down the last few days has taken over into a trend? Have we forgotten how quickly oil can spike? Have we forgotten that little thing called Global Warming?

I see first hand on our site how investor sentiment shifts quickly with the headlines and there is not a lot of long term thinking . But lets not forget where the smart long term money is going - reiterating an article we did on follow the money in renewable :

So as consumers viewing the new automobiles - don't forget how quickly fuel prices can spike and do you want to be caught? And for the bigger picture- green autos are the road to the future!
