End of a bad era

Bye-bye Hummer, Humvee or whatever you want to call it. General Motors will end production of Hummers for consumers.

Originally popular thanks to macho military fantasies of civilians, the Hummer has since become a symbol of unsustainable consumption and resource use.

In the ultimate chimeric transformation, Hummers were even made into hybrids, but such attempts to dress up a pig still result in nothing more than a pig with some lipstick.

Bye-bye Hummer, and may you go quickly.
