for every hybrid car we buy in america, they're selling ten SUVs in india and china-- the two fastest growing auto markets on the planet. you think our two or three hundred million cars are fucking up the planet? just wait till two billion chinky-eyed muhfuckas trade in their bicycles for toyotas.
really, the problem is, due to vastly improved technology and health care, there's just too many people on the planet, and too many of those people want to live like americans (i.e. consume, consume, consume, waste, waste, waste). the planet can't sustain it. the planet can't support the population we have now (6 billion), how the fuck is it gonna handle 10 billion people in 2050?
short of destroying every gasoline-powered vehicle and power plant on the planet in the next five years AND establishing strict population controls designed to *decrease* the population, what can we really do to stop it? it might take another 200 years or the earth may hit a tipping point and the whole thing could go to hell in a few decades, but with the population exploding, the population's rate of consumption exploding, and the world's governments wasting time bickering about a solution (or still trying to decide if there's even a problem), it's a near inevitability at this point.
