The New ‘Toyota Paradox’

nullSome of Toyota’s Prius hybrids will soon have solar panels. For now, the panels will power the air-conditioning unit, but in the future perhaps the entire car will be powered by the sun. And the hotter the better.

A Gore-gasmic “green” car with air-conditioning that essentially runs on global warming? I’d suggest changing the name of the vehicle to the “Toyota Paradox.” This is a little like heating the headquarters of your anti-logging organization with a furnace that only burns California Redwood.

The new solar-powered Prius will be available to the general public just as soon as Al Gore’s kid gets gets a sunny enough day to test it at his hybrid proving grounds.
