    But this doesn't weigh in the "I am better than you because I care" factor.

    As if your post required proof:

    ‘In fact, more than half of the Prius buyers surveyed this spring by CNW Marketing Research of Bandon, Ore., said the main reason they purchased their car was that “it makes a statement about me.” ‘http://www.nytimes.com/2007/07/04/business/04hybrid.html

    Which brings me back to corn based ethanol. More energy is used to produce the product than is released when it is used as a fuel. Which is an absolutely useless fact when confronting a politician trying to buy votes in the corn belt.

    Look at the usual suspects gather around red meat to rejoice a passage in a blog by Low-Tech Magazine on a topic they hope and pray to be true.

    You know, it's fittingly amusing that you clowns will adhere to a blog that quote:

    Low-tech Magazine refuses to assume that every problem has a high-tech solution. A simple, sensible, but nevertheless controversial message; high-tech has become the idol of our society.

    Low-tech Magazine: About

    Meanwhile, your entire M.O., almost to a man, is to DENY the concern over the drawdown of hyrdo-carbon energy sources by leaning on the assumption of technology advances!!!!!!

    So which is it, exactly? You guys don't seem to know WHERE you stand. All you know is that progress is bad, and status quo meal tickets like Big Oil? Gooooood.

    LOL... Cons... Rest assured that when faced with a fresh con claim, you can just lift the rock and watch the bugs scurry.

    Either way, some day, you morons will wish we put up the renewable infrastructure when we had the chance.... Costs will be irrelevant.
