ACC Engages in Car Discrimination informs us in that Austin Community College (ACC) has a new school policy: If you drive a new, pricey “green car” you get a preferred parking spot and avoid paying the parking meter. ACC published a list of approved green cars. None are older than 2000. The car at the top of the approved list is a 2009 Audi TT Coupe, which starts at $36,025.

The blog notes that this effectively discriminates against the cars and drivers frugally sticking to older cars.

Why is ACC engaging in such idiocy? Because ACC hired a Director on Environmental Stewardship and so is wasting money paying someone full time to come up with this nonsense. Mr Kim needs to go back to building stuff and get out of the eco-greenwashing racket - it will do more good for the world.
