    I wouldn't mind a hybrid or some other alternative fuelled car, but I need a large car for all my stuff. We have a Suburban. Someday, maybe there will be a suitable vehicle for me. Today, there is not.

    But yeah, cars are not the real problem anyway, either in terms of pollution or oil consumption. They are a minority of the problem in both. However, cars are the things we can most easily, as consumers and voters, control.

    The funny thing I almost never see people mention is that a geek who has a lot of computers and electronic equipment running 24/7 in his house may consume MORE fossil fuels and produce MORE pollution than someone who drives an SUV. Part of it is because it is not pleasant to think about, but the flipside is there's really nothing we can do about it, apart from turning our equipment off. And we don't like to change our lifestyle, we'd rather come up with solutions to accomodate our lifestyle.
