Americans need to stop be materialistic and finally accept that our "SUV" lifestyle is not sustinable. We need to drive hybrids, and mass transit, and our glorious gov't and big corporations need to free up all the technology that has been supressed that will benefit the world and our childrens children

Yeah, well maybe a hybrid or riding mass transit works if you are a city dweller and only need to commute to work. But for the millions of us that don't live in the bigger cities, a larger vehicle makes more sense. How? First, I live out in the country, miles from the grocery store and a 50 mile round trip to a Home Depot. With a SUV, I can carry more which allows me to combine trips. It would be an interesting study to see which scenario uses more fuel and pollutes more - your little hybrid making more (city driving) trips and requiring the use of diesel delivery trucks since it can't hold much, or my SUV/pickup truck making less (highway driving) trips and handling all my business.

You see, there are other circumstances besides just your own to consider when you make this kind of blanket pronouncement that you have discovered the "solution"
and now everyone else just needs to adopt your way of doing things.

My solution is simply for you to just do what works for you and let others decide for themselves based on their own needs and circumstances. If we decide we do need your advice, we'll send you a U2U. How's that?

Agreed. Why stop at hybrids? They use gas too! I say we all go back to bicycles...wait you need energy to manufacture them. I say we all just walk!...err but then we need shoes. ..once again the manufacturing thing...
And then there is the problem of electricity production...Let's go back to caves and just come out during sunlight!

You are a genius! The answer is de-evolution!

Actually the obvious answer is you are trying to make a logical decision based on your own personal morality. You have a right to your opinion but don't mix up your feelings with facts.

U.S. could learn a thing or two from Singapore

There you go as someone truly does agree with you with myself included.
