In February, GM Vice Chairman Bob Lutz defended his previous remarks dismissing global warming as a “total crock of shit.” “My thoughts on what has or hasn’t been the cause of climate change have nothing to do with the decisions I make,” Lutz alleged. Yesterday, Lutz was interviewed by CBS, and again refused to back away from his remarks. CBS reports:

“Well they don’t like what you said about global warming,” Stahl says. “Do you want to repeat what you said about global warming?” “Of course not, because this is a family network,” Lutz says.

“You don’t think there’s global warming? Is that really true?” Stahl asks. “I’m not going to get into this.
Because…,” Lutz replies. “Because you got into so much trouble when you said it the first time?” Stahl asks. “That could be right. Yeah,” Lutz admits.

“Well, actually some of them like me,” Lutz said of environmentalists. Watch it:


“Speaking about his own personal carbon footprint, Lutz acknowledges he and his wife own two helicopters and two jets,” CBS noted. “And remember, this guy is just a heartbeat away from the chairmanship of General Motors,” writes Joe Romm.
