Arnold Schwarzenegger Has Green Hummers

There’s no denying that Arnold Schwarzenegger is one interesting guy, and that he seems to be in the habit of flipping stereotypes on their heads. Body builder to world-famous actor; “The Terminator” to Governor of California; Republican climate leader; and now, owner of “green Hummers.”

Seriously.

Of course, everyone knows that Hummers are ridiculously wasteful vehicles. However, Mr Arnold notes that if you want a Hummer and you want to be green, you can do it (well, sort of).

Arnold actually has a fleet of Hummers, but he fuels them in green ways. “They are hydrogen engines and bio-fuel engines and one is being changed into an electrical engine,” Schwarzenegger noted to the Telegraph on a recent visit with the European Commission in Brussels, Belgium.

Rather than shame people into cutting their consumption, Arnold notes that “we should let them know they can be part of the solution by changing the technology in that car.”

Unfortunately, we really do need to cut our consumption and cut the use of wasteful consumer products like Hummers. I’m sure those Hummers eat up electricity and biodiesel real fast… refueling them excessively isn’t green no matter how you do it. That fuel/electricity could be used for other important purposes. But hey, if you really can’t live without consuming like there’s no tomorrow, at least try to do so like Arnold does….
