So how's the weather in fantasy land this time of year effew?

Sorry, but you're buying an oil company/domestic manufacturer line. The vested interests at stake (oil demand/competitive disadvantages) will go great distances to discredit a threat. In this case, you have been lead to believe the emissions numbers of a Prius are worse than they are (the Mack truck line). That is utter nonsense and ignores the reality and potential of the technology.

He may have been referring to the devastating environmental effects the batteries have when they're used up.

And I'd hardly call the prius the harbinger of the future automobile. The hybrid is a stop gap and nothing more.
