    I love the fact that the Prius lifespan is only 100k while the Hummer's is 300k. Talk about peverting statistics.

    Wow, how did you ever come by that amazing article? You should give yourself a pat on the back for discovering such a great read. Thank you for posting this (how old is it?) before anyone else, and getting the information out as quickly as humanly possible.

    Is there some way we could post in giant letters on the PriusChat home page: "Yes, we all know about the g*ddamn Sudbury nickel mines and how Hummers last three times as long as Priuses. It's all bullsh*t!"
    Would save everyone who thinks he's posting that article for the first time a bit of work.

    They have- there's nickel from the Sudbury mine in the Statue of Liberty. Maybe we should tear that down. ;)

    960 some odd posts and now he decides to be a troll?


    Hey did you know if you run that scenario out to 2,000,000 miles an Abrams tank is more green than the prius especially when you consider all the 3rd world citizens it takes out and we all know how much 3rd world people pollute.

    On a serious note if you extend the prius out to 300k the prius is way greener than the hummer. Or if you take the hummer down to 100k you will see how non-green the hummer is.

    Remember that 42.7% of all statistic are made up on the spot.

    Yeah it’s the best the anti green-car people have and they keep reloading the cannon with it.

    I beg to differ; it's 51.3%

    This article is actually worth reading, if you want a good laugh. Get a load of this:
    What did the author do- go up to each car with one of those things from the shoe store, and measure each cars "energy footprint"? :lol:
    Every time I read one of these articles (and the Troll News Network has probably posted about a dozen in the past few weeks), it's more inane than the last.
    If the OP decides to run to his nearest Toyota dealer and trade his Prius in on a Scion xB, I'll give him $100 over what the dealer offers for his Prius. I know he'll want to get rid of his Prius ASAP and reduce his energy footprint, because his concern about global warming is well-known, and, as the article concludes:

    Might be one of those "sleeper cell" trolls. :)

    Hi Daronspicer,

    The real question is not if you have a Prius, but do you have steel (stainless) eating utensils more than 10 years old!

    I know in my environmental studies course the book we used has a diagram of a foot and depending on the countries carbon output the foot gets bigger thusly carbon footprint. In one project we had to do our own carbon footprint by monitoring everything we do that produces carbon. Mine was drastically lower compared to a friend who drives a GMC truck. We commute almost the same distance live in relatively small apartment etc. we were similar until it came to vehicles. Sorry I sidetracked again but that is were the author probably got the shoe size thing.
