Sometimes good writing just has to be commended.
This first piece by Chris Trotter is awesome. I won't give it away but it is well crafted and delivers a real kick. Which I happen to disagree with.
The second is from Jeremy Clarkson the outspoken host of that car show. He is very witty, and amazingly I agree with him. We must get serious about alternative energy cars and we must really consider the true cost of producing a car rather than just look at fuel economy.
