Reuters - Toyota Motor Corp plans to start mass producing plug-in hybrid vehicles in 2012, with a projected first-year output of about 20,000 to 30,000 units, the Nikkei business daily reported. Toyota has said it would start leasing 500 plug-in cars globally by the end of this year, primarily for government and corporate use, but has not said when it would commercialize them. Toyota wants to price its plug-in hybrids at a comparable price to Mitsubishi Motors Corp's all-electric car, which debuts this month to fleet customers in Japan at 4.59 million yen ($47,800) before government subsidies, the Nikkei said.

Tree Hugger - Current rates of deforestation in the Amazon will have markedly less impact on the number of plant species to likely go extinct by mid-century, new research shows. Rather than the 20-33% predicted by some studies scientists from Wake Forest University say that 5-9% of species are likely to be extinct. . . The determining factor in habitat loss and extinction risk for a plant species was found not to be the size species' range, but its location.

I'm gagging on the wall street journal article. If Obama wants to regain one tiny shred of credibility, he'll have to stop sleeping with the pirates of Goldamn Sachs and the House of Morgan. Not likely, since he was installed precisely to give this country away to them lock, stock, and barrel.

Yes, Obama, I see right through you and your deceptive forked-tongue rhetoric. You're the best example ever of a wolf in sheep's clothing.

Damn you for your self-serving, calculated scheming and all the egregious harm you're doing to working people in America and globally. You are nothing more than another bogus and unwise and dishonorable deceiver-in-chief.

A note to you, you despicable trojan horse (and to the CIA-compliant Jim Lehrer, too): the coup plotters in Honduras' now-bloody coup are NOT an "INTERIM GOVERNMENT" and democratically elected leaders of sovereign nations should NOT be made by Hillary to NEGOTIATE with RIGHTWINGER CRIMINALS who illegally stole a country- again.
