While the launch of the electric vehicle i-MiEV from Mitsubishi in Costa Rica may not be readily relevant to the people of San Antonio, Texas, the fine folks at Mission Mitsubishi - the leading Mitsubishi dealership in San Antonio - know that it is a good thing.

Costa Rica has plans to gradually become a “carbon offset country" - one that emits zero CO2 - by the year 2021. This is a lofty goal, for sure, but with car companies like Mitsubishi helping out, there are many who believe it is possible.

In addition, there are many people who believe lofty goals like being a carbon offset country are one of the things that is going to enable the people of this planet to turn things around when it comes to abusing the environment.
