actual operation causes only a small part of the ecological
destruction! they cause! Think of all those huge roadbuilding
machines, strip mine operations (not many pollution controls on
rgose motors, you can bet- and are the motorheads planning to
switch those to hydrogen too? But wait-- just BUILDING all those
machines causes a unthinkably huge amount of pollution! And
we haven't even CONSIDERED all the energy used and resulting
pollutuion generated in the manufacture of the $^(%ing cars
themselves! Nor have we even thought about the fact that
recycling the cars that do not ultimately become pollution
themselves generates myriads of kotis of tons of really really
rude pollution-- think of all that burning plastic; dioxin city!
And THEN, we can think about all the medical waste generated
in the treatment of those hundreds of thousands of crash
victims!, Not to mention the dead bodies, smoke or ashes of the
crash victims who die. It goes on and on- I'd be here all day and
still noticing more horrible effects of $^(%ing cars!
And. in passing, think of the pollution generated by building all
the totally unnecessary, less-than-useless 'infrastructure' for the
motoreads dream "hydrogen economy'... ...and all those spent
nuclear fuel rods from the electricity needed for their hydrogen
separation plants (and, yep, they'd have to build THOSE, too. ...it
How can anyone even talk about this? ... well, I guess we've
been thoughly brainwashed....
