From Washington Free Beacon:
Neil Young, a high-profile proponent of cars powered by alternative fuels, was recently stranded on the highway when his own $1 million biomass-powered hybrid car broke down.
California highway patrol officers found the Canadian rocker stranded on the side of a road near Donner Summit, Calif.
Young was on his way to an environmentalist festival in Canada, according to theSierra Sun, driving his custom-made hybrid electric 1959 Lincoln Continental.
“The car is touted as the world’s first full-sized luxury series hybrid electric car powered by biomass, according to the LincVolt website,” the Sun reported.
This story is over a week old and the breakdown could well have been all about the age of the car and not the chosen fuel source, but that doesn’t change that an environ-weenie got stranded on the side of the road more or less miles from civilization in an overpriced car powered by trash.
This is why we non-environmentalist types take road trips in cars that use petrochemicals and are significantly younger (and cheaper). We actually want to get there.
