Let them ride bicycles: If Steve Jobs truly believed in the global warming hoax, why did he upgrade to a brand-new, 14 MPG-in-the-city gas-guzzler every six months?

How Steve Jobs legally drove Mercedes without license plates in California - The Economic Times
[Jon Callas] told that Jobs leased a silver Mercedes SL55 AMG, and every six months, he traded it in for a new one.

"At no time would he ever be in a car as old as six months; and thus, there was no legal requirement to have the number plates fitted," ABC News quoted Heath, as saying.

Yup - yet another MMGW hypocrite. Don't forget this quote about his private Gulfstream Jet "What I really need is a plane where I can take my family to Hawaii on vacation, go to the East Coast.' And according to his bio he privately complained to Obamma about too much regulation strangling business - all the while Apple's PR department were clamouring for the EPA to introduce GHG regulations which would damage his US competitors but leave his Asian sub-contractors unaffected.
