    s0n.......hate to break it to you but long, long after you are in your box, we'll be using lots and lots of fossil fuels for energy.

    And umm........nobody buys 4 cylinder pickup trucks.

    America's best-selling cars and trucks of 2010 are...


    I love when the nutters put it on a tee for you!!!:coffee:

    Cars number 3-9 are fuel efficient vehicles. These cars total wayyyyyy more than one or two.... so it looks.

    I love 4 cylinder 5 speed Toyota trucks which is why we have two. In fact I consider them quite practical. Enough power,easy to park,haul all we need to including a trailer and easy enough on gasoline. 5 speeds are more fun.

    NO....You started this. And like all of you tree hugging wing nuts, you always find ways to squirm away from your responsibilities.
    I am not letting go of this.
    Now, you talk the talk. You WILL walk the walk....Al of those nice things you described, They cost tons of money up front. They must be manufactured. Most of the manufacturing process involves the use of......OMG!!!! Petro-chemicals.
    There is no escape. You people are so adept at calling attention to yourselves yet when the details come to light ,you're no different than anyone else.
    You are like the label and title conscious yuppies of the 80's.. It's all about "hey look at me!!!!"..
    Style over substance..
    Here's some examples....The wealthy business person who flies alone on a private jet which can seat 15 people because he is in a hurry to get to a conference on energy conservation.
    Of the douche bag who has a Greenpeace sticker on the bumper of his......SUV.... AND throws a spent cigarette butt out onto the pavement.
    Or the ever environmentally conscious former Vice President who jets around the globe showing photos of Polar Bears floating about on chunks of ice to allege melting polar ice caps...Then returns home to his sprawling 28,000 square foot house that uses the energy of 20 normal sized homes.

    Can you tow a 25 foot boat or RV with a 4 banger?....Thought not..
    How about a 16 foot utility trailer loaded with tools and equipment necessary to do a job? Thought not.

    You do realize the odds of finding either are somewhat less than those of being struck by a meteorite?

    Additionally, we've got too many people who are too fuckin' stupid to recognize the national-security implications.​

    Because the "solutions" proposed are all political in nature.
