Clueless

From the first paragraph of this article.
Whats wrong with this paragraph:

[ "Closely following a sighting of a Hydrogen-powered 7 series during testing, BMW officially announced the Hydrogen 7 today. The car is touted as the first hydrogen-drive luxury performance automobile for everyday use. The BMW Hydrogen 7 will be built in a limited series, and sold to select customers in the U.S. and overseas in 2007. The engine in the Hydrogen 7, a derivative of the 7 series 12 cylinder engine, is capable of running on gasoline or hydrogen, and produces 260 hp. The car will accelerate from 0 to 62.1 mpg in 9.5 seconds. The ability to run on both gasoline and hydrogen gives the Hydrogen 7 a range of more than 400 miles. The high tech hydrogen storage tank has a capacity of approximately 17.6 lb of liquid hydrogen, giving the Hydrogen 7 a cruising range in hydrogen mode upwards of 125 miles. The gasoline mode accounts for an additional 300 miles of cruising range. The driver is the one who decides which fuel to use, with a smooth transition between both operating modes, since the engine power and torque remain identical regardless of the fuel used." ]
Reality:
C'mon, you can do it.
Think: "Hi, I'm a total lefty where facts and numbers are meaningless so long as they further the cause."
Then you'll be close. I'm thinking definately Freudian.
Don't get me wrong. I think this is cool as hell, but come on. Stop drinking the Global Warming Kool-ade and be grounded in real-life, will ya?

Wow, they said "mpg" when they should've said "mph". This totally invalidates any concerns about global warming!
