Sometimes saving the world from global warming is as simple as removing a badly designed roof-rack …

That’s just one of the innovations that automakers have tried in the last year in an effort to win rebates for efficiency or avoid penalties for excessive gas consumption. It’s a perfect demonstration of how intelligently industry can react when given appropriate incentives.
