the ironic thing about the whole "green movement," especially hybrids and electric cars is that the methods/products they espouse as eco friendly are often terrible for the environment. the prius is a great example: the batteries used to power the electric motor are made with heavy metals and acids that are rejected into the environment at the plant during production and after their use, a much more grievous injury to the environment that the CO2 emisions during the normal life cycle of a standard car

The factories that produce such are also the main contributors to the rise of carbonic acid levels in our oceans. Marine life can't adapt fast enough to the rise in temperature.

it's funny you should say that, because i have an '89 pontiac that (when tuned up, it definitely doesn't get this right now), i was getting about 36 MPG out of it.

That's why you should look for the contamination balance, which not many companies show.
Anyway, biofuels such as ethanol are way better, because you are producing CO2 from plants that have just taken it from the atmosphere. The only problem is that this product has to be very pure, unlike petrol, it needs more than one process of purification, and it's a little less powerfull (2/3 the energy of petrol). Another point, specially for the US (no ********* please) is that you have to add the costs and all the pollution originated by the militar protection of oil wells to the final balance

That's why you drive a 1.0 liter focus if you want to save the planet and your money!

Or ya know people get those cars to save gas money regardless of what it does to the environment
User avatar #22 to #3 - PlagueDoctor (04/08/2013) [-]
that is not entirely true: if every car would be replaced by a hybrid, the lower amount of exhaust gasses would ENTIRELY compensate for this
User avatar #31 to #22 - princessderpy (04/08/2013) [-]
Flex fuel is more useful than hybrid.

also if you were to replace every car with a hybrid, the pollution would be insurmountable you **** tard, think how many people there are, now think how many cars each person has. Now think of the costs of making the plastics, metals and what not, it would be more economical for the environment if we all went to electric, but hybrid does not even give you that much extra fuel economy, my 81 camaro gets 24mpg, that is more than some hybrids.

hurr durr, what about electric cars like the volt?!

Let me just plug this into the grid, which for most Americans is powered by coal, that'll save the world!
User avatar #9 to #5 - carmasterzaib (04/08/2013) [-]
i ******* hate the volt...arggg!!

That's because the whole green movement is about power for some, and about feeling good for others.

User avatar #8 to #6 - carmasterzaib (04/08/2013) [-]
that sense of superiority that they feel when they pull up along side a gas guzzling SUV is probably immense for them...but then a toyota yaris drives along side and then they feel retarded like they should..
User avatar #10 to #8 - durkadurka (04/08/2013) [-]
And for those in power the green movement is an easy way to gain increased control over other people's lives. "Drive this car, eat this food:" etc.
User avatar #11 to #10 - carmasterzaib (04/08/2013) [-]
i have no problem with the green movement...but they are pushing gasoline hybrid technology which is complete ******** . Also Americas Diesel tax is the dumbest ******* thing ever....
User avatar #32 to #11 - princessderpy (04/08/2013) [-]
My "gas guzzling" camaro gets 24mpg, that is about what a mid grade hybrid gets, yet they take 12 seconds to hit 60, mine does that in less than half the time.

An SS with 24mpg? I have a hard time believing that if so, those I suppose anything is possible these days

Well I have to tune down the 4 barrel carb, and that is highway, but yea.

The "smug in your face" Prius drivers are a special breed of cunt.
