    As the title implies, are we in the right track with automobile development worldwide?

    What I mean is, nowadays you see cars that have touch screen displays in them, and all sorts of other frivolities. Are these luxuries really what automobile manufacturers should be focusing on?

    Global warming is a reality whether you disagree or not, there is mass evidence to prove it. And automobile pollution is one of the largest contributors. Wouldn't their time better be spent developing new, less pollution creating methods to power vehicles? Please chime in with your thoughts and opinions please.

    No. Less time should be spent on electronic gizmos, and more time should be spent to make the car a better driver's car. The worst part is the "downsizing" of engines. Take for example, the e60 M5 which had a 10 cylinder engine, the new F10 M5 has a twin turbo 8 cylinder. The e60's V10 is what made the car in many ways, it's what gave it it's soul. The new F10 has doesn't have that, in fact it's engine's noises are piped in through the inside speakers and are fake, but it has more electronic gizmos then the last generation and will appeal to more people. Also many of these new generation of cars are not as "raw" as there predecessors, take for example the new Viper and the current gen. Viper.

    Another word for global warming which is more commonly used is weather.

    As for engines etc, give me a Boss 429 sitting under the hood of an early 70's Mustang over anything made today.

    You actually used a financial magazine article to support the misconceived notion that the climate is okay. Have you ever heard of biased reporting. Forbes would obviously support the illusion that our environment is fine. If you are going to reference information on science you should get reliable sources. That article is just heresay and biased interpertation on scientific data. This kind of referencing promotes widespread misinformation or what is commonly called rumors. Read a Science Journal on the same subject, interpet the data and then draw a conclusion. You should be sceptical of someone who gets paid by an entity that supports financial and/or corporate institutions and then reports on Science. Would you hire a scientist to give you financial advice? I would think not.

    Forbes like most other magazines reports on a lot of topics, I have read articles on Watergate in playboy and found the information to be more accurate and raw (not sugar coated or spun to death) Like it might be in a political magazine that leans to the right or left.

    Weather patterns change, they always have and they always will. If they didn't we would still be in an ice age....

    True

    Not true, nor is there any evidence of it. Frankly if it's any motor vehicle it's heavy trucks.

    Weather patterns and climate change are different things.
