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, to revisit the press attaches, to take part in press trials and to share small fours and other VIP attentions, starting with the famous press kits !! There, between the glossy pages and other photos (in duplicate with the CD ROM!?!) Not a derogatory question "nor a word about the Scx values, mass increase, the uselessness of electronic gadgets to reliability dubious prices (forced prices!) or overconsumption due to the 4 driving wheels !! Of course, here and there, information about the more or less alternative energies: hydrogen, the CAP or the LPG (see also http://www.mobility-and-sustainability.com/) ... But almost nothing to buy worth in concessions !! But progress is only worth if it is shared is not it? And in front of the energy waste and its pollution, "one" returns the ball. For example, legislation obliges LPG vehicles to be also gasoline, so technical compromise is rather disappointing or even "Turn on your codes!" To over-consume 2 to 8% and so ... compensate for the radarS effect and its decline in average speeds . Indeed, the newspapers TV announced this summer that in 2003 the consumption of fuels decreased by 1% in France! Let 1 billion euros of TIPP in months despite the 4 × 4 fashionable USA! And I bet that this stupid measure refused by Europe in 2001 will be voted by 4 months: security has good back in this country of hypocrites to power !! JP Jabouille has entrusted RTL to a journalist embarrassed "To too much want to prevent us from dying, we are prevented 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!
Last but not least, the manufacturer does not reduce fuel consumption (or so little in the face of the increase in masses and the Scx aerodynamics that has worsened since 30 years!) But then polluted. Just to meet the standards to homologate and ... sell! And how do these vehicles age in pollution? It is not the bogus and complacent technical control, competition compelled, put in place that can tell us reliably. Yet already 735 Million less than 3.5 T in the world: how many VW Lupo 3 Liters or Audi A2 TDI? Audi will stop this model: too smart for the "traditional" customers of the brand who prefer to display in A3 or BIGGER of course! Only ecological tax incentives could save these models and resurrect our Citroën ECO 2000, Peugeot VERA and other Renault VESTA 1 and 2 1984 ... prototypes ... less polluting it's FIRST LESS CONSUMER to iso comfort if possible! But short-term profits and lobbies are holding up well in Brussels. Where are the reporters worthy of the name ??? They really do not need a press card to relay the communication of the large car assemblers (80% are manufactured by OEMs!).
Man is the only predator of man. QED.
