My son had an eco day at school today and they had 3 organizations in to give talks. One Group's speaker told the students (grade 6-8) that hybrid cars and the Prius in particular were not eco friendly and in fact were worse to own than a Hummer in terms of the environment. My son is obviously very confused having heard a school endorsed speaker tell him his mom's car is worse than any other car on the market including the Hummer. I obviously gave him my perspective but I want to follow up with the school. Does anyone know of any links to easily accessible factual information to dispute this speaker and perhaps enable me to make sure that this speaker is not going around to many schools and influencing children and teenagers about their future choice of cars. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Obviously, I did not hear the information first hand, and I am getting my son's account of the talk, and I will ask the school to provide me with more information about what was actually said during this talk, but the general message my son received was a very negative message regarding hybrid cars.
