This came over the transom this week… Unfortunately I will not be able to directly participate as our Prius will be carpooling a group of ASL students to a conference Eugene on Friday…
to highlight TOYOTA’s lobbying against fuel efficiency in US Congress.
Time: Friday October 12th, 2007 10:30am-11:30am
Location: Parading from Fred Meyer’s parking lot (NE Wiedler S t. and 32nd Ave) to media event.
We’d love to know that you’re coming!
Please contact Emily Southard to RSVP at email@example.com or 503-231-4181 x 303.
TOYOTA: moving backward.
Toyota’s actions don’t match their “Green” image:
-Toyota, producer of the Prius, one of the most efficient cars on the road, is actually lobbying against increasing fuel efficiency standards.
-Join the thousands of American consumers who are telling Toyota to drop its efforts to block legislation to increase fuel economy and state laws that reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
-It is time for Toyota to earn its reputation as a green company!
(Although I support the concept behind this protest and would likely be participating if the car were available, I have no past history of working with this group and am passing this on as information without directly endorsing it.)
