Ford Motor withdraws from climate change group
Examiner ^ | 1-26-12 | David Freddoso

Posted on 01/25/2012 11:38:10 AM PST by WOBBLY BOB

The National Center for Public Policy Research is claiming a scalp today after Ford Motor Co. formally withdrew from the liberal U.S. Climate Action Partnership. The conservative non-profit announces today that Ford has withdrawn from the organization, which uses corporate support form management to work against shareholders' interests by promoting a cap-and-trade framework for carbon emissions.

This is the way the hoax ends: Not with a bang but a whimper.

I want to buy Ford. My company has always bought Ford trucks. This is another good reason to buy a Ford.

BUT now I need a new Suburban or similar. My 2000 is a bit ragged out. BUT, I can’t find a Ford product that matches it. And I hate to buy Obama Motors. Come on Ford, make something as good as a Suburban please.

Ford was first to recover after 2008, they took no bailout and renegotiated there union contracts, they are growing and GM is still in the hole and will remain there, don’t listen to the propaganda on the buisness news that say’s GM has recovered, all they have done is kick there collapse down the road.

Interesting. This might leave Il Douche with no choice but to have the federal government take over ownership and operation of Ford Motor Company...

I’m surprised they were there in the first place.

Way to go, Ford.

Ballsy move aimed at shareholders, much like the dividend coming back.

Earnings Friday.

The Mulally mantra, good news, on top of good news in dribs and drabs a few days inbetween. This is just after a gang buster Detroit Auto Show.

My guess this will catch the attention of Conservative potential buyers.

Watch Friday, their earnings... My gut tells me the knock the skin off the ball. ( not investment advice) Our dear leader will not be happy when it makes GM look weak...

Back in the early years of the last decade, Ford had a CEO (can't remember his name) who was a firm believer in global warming and tried to steer the company towards more "green" policies. This is probably a hold-over from his reign.

I love it when corporate America loudly and proudly announces that it has gonads.

Like it a lot.

Haha, are you thinking of Bill Ford Jr. Or Jac Nasser? They are both libtards, but at least Jr. realized that his green agenda was destroying his namesake, so he stepped aside and hired Mullaly.

it’s increasingly rare.

they’ll probably get audited soon or a lot of OHSA inspectors will show up.

For 2013, Ford will no longer offer the V-6 in the Fusion. I think this is a mistake. The AWD 3.5 set up has fantastic grip. With a little tuning, it could be a BMW beater...

I know that and totally agree - that’s why I am begging Ford to make something as good as a Suburban. I cannot stand GM but right now, they have the best product in that particular class, and I need that particular class.

Good for Ford!
I grew up in a GM family, but switched, myself, with the whole bailout stuff. Now, with this announcement, I especially consider myself more Ford than GM.

...now if Ford could kill the UAW! I’d get their logo tattooed on my chest!
