Bob Lutz, chair of General Motors, is a climate change denier, but if you buy his electric car you’ll save $$$ and it’s a “chick magnet” too. From the press release:
Fuel- efficient — The new chick magnet? Close to nine in 10 women (88 percent) say they’d rather chat up someone with the latest fuel-efficient car versus the latest sports car.
But on Colbert, Lutz had a different perspective – saying that the car will help men attract “nice, no-makeup environmental women”.
