Save the planet: buy Hummers, scrap Priuses
Patrick Crozier

Samizdata’s Robert Clayton Dean points to the article here which points out that:

  1. Priuses aren’t as economical as you might think, and
  2. when you add in the energy involved in making them in the first place, each one - over the course of a lifetime - will use up more energy than a Humvee.

So if you accept the alleged energy = pollution = global warming = bad, equation then you really ought to swap.  But, what happens if you subscribe to the energy = pollution = global warming = good, equation?  Does that mean you have to trade-in the Humvee?

Tell us, Arnie, tell us.
