    Are they ignorantly going to be extending tax breaks for people driving hybrids that a net damage to the environment greater than most other vehicles, including SUVs?

    :dunno: probably

    Hybrids are trash, but I guess those who buy them are supporting a technology with potential. But yes, as it sits right now an H2 is more economically friendly than a Prius.

    why? Families dont need massive SUV's. People should breed less, drive smaller vehicles, everyone will be happy.

    ok, so I was wrong, but still, right now hybrids cause more problems than they solve.

    Hydraulic hybrid ftw

    glad to see Canada catches up to America as we already have a gas guzzler tax.

    have had for 20 years.


    nice going neighbors up north.

    It costs more energy to produce a Prius than it does to make a Hummer.

    They should have a gas guzzler tax on anything that gets less than 16mpg on average & if you drive more than 8k miles a year on it.

    I thought this was only for high end sports cars but not SUV's and Trucks? I think Canada has had the gas guzzler tax for Ferraris, Porsches, etc for a while too.

    Nobody has actually refuted their claims. Until someone puts out a study that says otherwise, I'll believe what they've got to say. Especially since they've now done multiple studies without any opposing studies.

    :rofl: Gee, I wonder why. Maybe because we're the largest most industrialized nation on the fucking planet. Still, we do a hell of a lot better of a job keeping things clean compared to most other countries.

    yea, look at China. Pollution is so bad in some places that it is unsafe to go outside.

    But still, if green house gasses affect the earth(I dont care if they do), USA should do something to set an example for the rest of the world instead of continuing to drive huge V8 4x4's to the grocery store.

    Why? How about we set an example by leading the world in personal freedoms instead of paranoia from hyperbole?
