Environmentalist, automaker on same US commission

Mary Nichols, chairwoman of the California Air Resources Board and CEO of Ford on Commission on the Future of Mobility

It is a sign of times that people from the opposite ends of the spectrum find themselves at the same table.

Mary Nichols, a prominent regulator known for her hard stance against environmental pollution, and Jim Farley, the CEO of Ford, one of the world's largest auto companies - and willy-nilly hence a significant polluter - have been appointed co-chairs of the Commission on the Future of Mobility (CFM), a project of business, technology and policy leaders focused on creating opportunities through sustainable, equitable movement of people and goods around the world.

Such meeting of (opposite) minds could be quite valuable for accelerating sustainability of large sectors such as the auto industry.
