Arnold Schwarzenegger has ditched his beloved $950,000 (GBP500,000) fleet of Hummer cars in a bid to save the environment. The Terminator movie star-turned-California governor is devoted to the sport utility vehicles for their "precision". He was the first person to own one of cars in 1992 after persuading manufacturers to make them for non-army purposes. But Hummers emit three times more carbon dioxide than a regular car - and after the State of California announced it was suing carmakers Toyota, Nissan, Ford, Honda, Chrysler and General Motors over greenhouse gas emissions, ex movie star Schwarzenegger felt it was prudent to make the change. Eco-aware campaigner Al Gore confirms, "Arnie has given up his Hummers."

It's a shame Arnie didn't have the foresight back in 1992 before begging the automakers to fulfill his whim. Thanks to him, these fuel guzzlers are all over roads down here in southern california. He should be sued by his own state too - accountability, accountability, accountability - when will he be held to it?

According to sources close to the Terminator, they will now be piloting an eco-friendly fleet of Prius...haha. That would be kind of odd, being that he's supposedly suing Toyota, eh? The dude can't make up his friggin mind.

How pus! Arnold sure worries too much about being re-elected. Just another politician trying for the green weenie vote this time around. Well, what do we expect of an actor/ress. They spend their lives playing other people.

So much for being environmentally aware. Instead of a majority of his fleet of hummers sitting in the garage most days, now all of the new owners will be driving all of the vehicles most every day. This was a stupid move if his goal was to truly be eviro-friendly. To me at least the math does not add up.

Did he consign the Hummers to the scrap heap, or did he sell them to others who will continue to use them to polute the environment that he suddenly cares about?
