Honda, Least Polluting Automaker 2003

The Union of Concerned Scientists released results of a study that measured the environmental performance of vehicle manufacturers. The the third straight time, the study named Honda the least polluting of all automakers. GM was named as the highest polluter.

The report measures smog forming pollutants from all manufacturer vehicles, and does not measure the vehicle plants themselves.

A GM spokesperson, Joanne Krell responded to the report by saying, "We think the report more accurately reflects an automaker's fleet vehicle mix, and U.S. consumers' purchase behavior, than it does environmental performance." (Reuters)

Exactly, Joanne. GM makes lousy cars, but the people keep buying them.
