LDAHL......I'm not sure what the heck you are saying. It's not all or nothing. I don't live in Bolivia. It's all a continuum and I'm saying that we're ruining our life-support system. Yes, a Prius isn't perfect, but it's a tad better than an Escalade.......and the choices that either car owner make, do make a difference, as small as it may seem. Like I said.....I'm not sure what the heck you are saying.
