Electric starter's inventor Kettering was no crank | Hagerty Media

As you start your car with a key or button and turn on the A/C in the late summer heat, you might want to pause for a moment to remember the man who made both of those things possible-and helped put women behind the wheel.

Leaded gasoline and freon got us through many years before safer alternatives were found, so I don't think it's fair to hold that against Charles Kettering. Besides, where would we be without him?

TEL and Freon as "evil". More phony science being sold as truth, mostly because the speculation has been repeated enough to become "fact".
