Global auto, green communication, compliant press ... and nothing in the facts! - By Zorro the 14 / 11 / 2004 / 18: 58
A large bi annual Mass Global Auto 2004 Paris, all the specialized press (! Or not) was the appointment: 1 460 803 visitors and especially small increase 10732 55% of which foreign journalists)
This is an opportunity for French journalists, mainly Parisians, reviewing press officers, take appointment for testing press and share biscuits and other VIP treatment, starting with the famous press kits !! There, between the glossy pages and other pictures (in doubles with CD ROM!?!) Not a derogatory question "nor a word about Scx values, mass increase, the uselessness of electronic gadgets reliability doubtful (prices taken oblige!) or overconsumption due to 4 wheel drive !! Of course, here and there, information on the more or less alternative energy: hydrogen, the CAP or LPG (see http://www.mobility-and-sustainability.com/) ... But almost nothing to buy valid concessions !! But the progress is only worthwhile if it is shared is not it? And to energy waste and pollution, "one" is passing the buck. For example, the law requires LPG vehicles as gasoline therefore be quite disappointing technical compromise or "Turn so your codes! "For on-consuming to 2 8% ... and so offset the effect radars and lower average speeds. Indeed, TV newspapers announced this summer that 2003 fuel consumption has dropped ... 1% in France! TIPP is 1 billion euro × month despite 4 4 to USA fashion! And I bet you that stupid measure rejected by Europe in 2001 4 be voted by month: security is still good in this country of hypocrites in power !! In this regard JP Jabouille has also told RTL front of a very embarrassed journalist "Trying too hard to prevent us from dying, it prevents us from living! ".
The media so complacent, sufficient and honeyed with wishes, are in fact, to boot !! advertisers advertising revenues (down from 2 years) represent between 50 and 80% of their income (100% for free) .They therefore can not write anything right and they often ignore or make fun of sustainable development in Paris selfish good, already mired in its pollution!
Finally to end, remember that the manufacturer does not reduce consumption (or hardly cope with the increase of the masses and aerodynamics Scx worsening since 30 years!) But then dépolluent. Just to meet the standards for certifying and ... sell! And how these vehicles they vieillisent in pollution? This is not the technical control can and complacent, competition forces set up that will tell us a reliable way. Yet already 735 million car under 3.5 T in the world: how VW Lupo 3 Litres or A2 Audi TDI? Audi will stop this model: too smart to "traditional" brand customers who prefer to display or A3 BIGGEST course! Only green tax incentives could save these models and prototypes resurrect our ECO 2000 Citroën, Peugeot and other VERA Renault VESTA 1 and 2 from 1984 ... less polluting is to FIRST iso LESS ENERGY comfort if possible! But the short-term profits and lobbies stand firm in Brussels. Or did the journalists worthy of the name ??? They did not really need a press card to relay the communication of major assemblers of cars (80% are manufactured in OEM!).
Man is the only predator of man. QED.
