Environment: Kung Fu Monkey: Hybrids and Hypotheses. A great discussion of the Toyota Prius:
Kevin Drum recently quoted a study which re-iterated that there’s no “real” advantage to buying a hybrid. It’s only just as convenient — so if you’re driving a hybrid, you’re doing it for some other reason than financial incentive.
That made me think: what a perfect example of just how fucking useless as a society we’ve become. We can’t even bring ourselves to do the right thing when it’s only JUST as convenient as doing the wrong thing. And that’s not even considered odd. Even sadder.
