Retired chemist Gilles Labelle, who runs a hybrid-car dealership outlet in Massachusetts, is less a salesman of cars than a proponent of an ideal.

“I've made my money,” he tells the Milford (MA) Daily News. “My goal and objective is to make people aware that we have a carbon dioxide problem.”

His Hybrid Center is part of Westboro (MA) Motors, which sells Toyotas and Dodges. Labelle says he sells up to 35 Toyota Priuses a month.

He spends time and money promoting awareness of fuel efficiency and auto emissions.

Labelle, 61, co-founded Cambridge Isotope Laboratories, a developer of stable isotopes and chemical compounds.
