2012 was not a good year for green car maker Fisker, makers of the Fisker Karma, and the news isn’t getting any better. A new report reveals that Fisker hasn’t built a car in six months, which is troubling in and of itself.

We all know somebody who seems to never catch a break. Sometimes their “bad luck” is merely a result of their own poor decisions. But sometimes, these people seem to get screwed by fate time and again, through no fault of their own. Fisker Automotive has made plenty of poor decisions, but this time it really seems like they’re getting screwed, as their insurance company is refusing to pay for $33 million worth of Karma hybrids destroyed by Hurricane Sandy.
Hurricane Sandy hit the east coast hard, with New Jersey and New York taking the brunt of the storm. Now a Nor’easter has brought snow to the region setting back the hurricane recovery even more. While the Red Cross and FEMA are working to rebuild and supply aid, Greenpeace has appeared to help with a solar power array strapped to a truck. The vehicle is called Rolling Sunlight.

Last week Hurricane Sandy ravaged areas of the East Coast, especially New Jersey and New York, leaving roads closed, public transportation swamped, and over 15,000 cars destroyed. This left people with a serious transportation problem…at least those who didn’t invest in a bicycle. As many people sat in gridlock or waited hours in line for the bus, those who rode bicycles on the regular managed to avoid the worst of it.
