Submission + - SPAM: Ban vehicles that get less than 35 MPG?

coondoggie writes: "Here's one way to get folks to buy cars that get better gas mileage — ban the vehicles that don't get at least 35 MPG. That's what the former chairman of oil giant Shell has told the European Union today. The BBC and others reported this morning that Mark Moody-Stuart said: "Nobody needs a car that does 10-15 mpg." Gas-guzzling cars are unnecessary, he said. The BBC said Moody-Stuart's comments, which were directed at European governenments but obviously have world-wide impact, have been met with anger from various quarters of the auto industry who suggest they would limit freedom of choice for car-buyers. It's even been suggested that Moody-Stuart is declaring an opinion he would never dreamed of expressing while at the helm of the Shell Group, and betraying the drivers of sports cars and luxury cars that, as one angry motorist put it, "have been paying his wages for most of his working life."
