Conversations with D2: All that will be left is cockroaches and Hummers
D2: Did you know that Arnold Schwarzenegger bought the first Hummer?
Me: For some reason, and I wish I didn’t, I do know that. I also know that he was one of the people who influenced the government to give the Hummer company the right to make and market a civilian version.
D2: What do you mean?
Me: They were developed for use by the military. They’re still used primarily as military vehicles. The big ones, though. Not like (motions to the H3 ahead of us in traffic) that one.
D2: But aren’t they really polluting cars?
Me: Yeah, I guess the military prioritizes national defense over reducing carbon emissions.
D2: They keep that up, and there won’t be any people to defend. We’ll all die from the climate change.
