    However, if more Southerners drove hybrids and/or electric vehicles, that would stimulate the economy as well as cutting back on emissions.  That, I think, is the answer for this region.

    Have you ever heard the statistic that Americans make up 5% of the world population and consume 30% of its resources?

    Do you really think that's sustainable?

    Petroleum is only a tiny portion of that 30%.  The only, literally the only solution you propose is something that would cut down slightly on petroleum usage, while keeping everything else the same.  And somehow that's a solution?

    May you live long enough to see what that attitude does to the world.
