  1. I’d like to congratulate Ellen Kunes in her new role at Consumer Reports, and ask her a question long on the minds of readers who are alarmed about climate change and care about the environment: When is Consumers Union and CR magazine going to publish an annual Auto Issue that reflects the incredible damage to our environment and tens of thousands of premature deaths from tailpipe emissions caused by gas and diesel-powered cars and trucks????? In other words, when are the auto editors going to stop business as usual — praising better gas mileage in pickup trucks, heaping praise on Subaru despite how few hybrid cars the Japanese maker produces, and picking gas-guzzling SUVs as Top 10 vehicles, even when gas-electric hybrid versions are offered — and evaluate every vehicle on their efficiency. So, next April’s Top 10 would have to have a hybrid or EV drivetrain to make the list. Manufacturers who support a rollback of EPA mileage standards would be criticized and readers would be urged to boycott their vehicles. Please, no more business as usual in your auto segment.
