General Motors is recycling an estimated 100 miles of plastic boom material used to help contain the BP Gulf oil spill. GM plans to turn the booms into 100,000 pounds of plastic resin. The resin will be mixed with other materials, including recycled tires, to make the parts that deflect air around the Chevrolet Volt's radiator.

Flyboy, a corporation's job is to earn money for shareholders, not to make sure a simpleton like you is taken care of. I don't care much for BP and have nothing but disdain for Obama motors (GM). However, a car that only goes 40 miles on a charge is worthless to 95% of Americans. You probably are a prime candidate for a vehicle like that though because you drive in circles. Don't get dizzier.
I've always thought that GM and the Oil Companies were in bed together, ever since GM killed the Electric Car. So now they are aiding BP in recovering their money they were required to spend cleaning up THEIR pollution of our beautiful Gulf of Mexico. If GM was really interested in helping our environment, then they would have developed a truly "electric" automobile, instead of some half-a__ed auto that still uses: antifreeze; burns polluting gasoline; uses engine oil and all those other things that our current auto do, that ruining our health and country by killing the trees, etc. At least the Nissan Leaf and the Ford Focus "ALL" electric auto will be helping and they are the ones I'll be investing my good-hard earned money in. NOT GM (God awful Motors), who has NEVER thought of the consumer when making their products. If you doubt it, look at what GM did to the diesel auto: charged $4000.00 more because they were diesels and would help "save" the environment and then gave you $4000.00 less than the ICE (Internal Combustion Engine [gas]) because it was a diesel engine that proved to be so buggy that GM finally stopped making them. I could say more, but I believe you get my point!!
I learned more from the text describing the video than I did from the video -- and I read it faster than I could watch the video. Video isn't always the best conduit for information!
