Give Up Your SUV

Give Up Your SUV:
"It's a wonder we Americans haven't choked to death on all the hypocrisy we've been force-fed of late.

It's much more of an "us versus them" confrontation, "us" being any rich politico looking to protect his or her unfettered access to privilege and luxury, "them" being the suckers (you and me) being asked to sacrifice for the good of our noble caretakers

Aviation experts say that just one cross-country round trip on a GIV churns out between 83,000 to 90,000 pounds of carbon dioxide...the average earth-raping American, on a per-capita basis, produces just 50,000 pounds of carbon dioxide from all activities (including driving those shameful SUVs) in an entire year. "
As Glenn Reynolds says: "I'll believe it's a crisis when the people who say it's a crisis start acting like it's a crisis."
