Anyone still want to give U.S. automakers a few trillion dollars, believing they actually want to build "clean cars," "reduce emissions," and help the country "go electric"?

GM is a fossil fuel company
Toyota is a fossil fuel company
Fiat Chrysler is a fossil fuel company

Corporations that make cars can't be part of our strategies to address climate change.

The only guaranteed way to reduce future emissions is to help people drive less *right now.*
