    At least Tribbles aren't endangered, except around here, where they are very uncommon. Jayman didn't mention sheep, so you can be thankful for that.

    Aren't these the same nuts who want to ban all wireless communications, indeed electricity itself?

    I believe so. That would certainly eliminate most of the non-natural EMF.

    Calling people names doesn't invalidate that they did post the magazine article where EMF levels of other cars was actually collected. Data (even if its shoddy, as long as you know the parameters) always supercedes rhetoric. Interestingly, the Volvo S60 and S80 appear to have high EMF levels throughout the car.

    True, but having a history of being a nut does cast suspicion on the quality of the study and data.

    Could it be the electrically heated seats people in cold climates seem to love?

    What's a "tribble"?

    Is it like, "I had a tribble time trying to find a park at the shops today, all the spaces were full."

    Yeah but it was a separate French car magazine that did the testing? Yay for guilt by repost. :facepalm:

    Hiya, FOTodd:

    I'm interested in the same things you are about this. Maybe you'd like to drop me a note so we can communicate about this? I'm now conducting my own tests on the Prius.

    I do find there's also much more disinformation online about this than good information. And I also believe that anyone giving themselves over to the assurances of a manufacturer or a government without checking facts for themselves will often experience disappointment.

    Thanks!,
    Mike
