THE RECORDER/(VIA PJM):
Building a Toyota Prius causes more environmental damage than a Hummer that is on the road for three times longer than a Prius. ... When you pool together all the combined energy it takes to drive and build a Toyota Prius, the flagship car of energy fanatics, it takes almost 50 percent more energy than a Hummer - the Prius’s arch nemesis.HUH!? A WUTTA!? BUT THE ECO-NUTSIES OF THE LEFT WANT US ALL TO DRIVE HYBRIDS LIKE THIS, NO!?! SHEESH.
Through a study by CNW Marketing called “Dust to Dust,” the total combined energy is taken from all the electrical, fuel, transportation, materials (metal, plastic, etc) and hundreds of other factors over the expected lifetime of a vehicle. The Prius costs an average of $3.25 per mile driven over a lifetime of 100,000 miles - the expected lifespan of the Hybrid.
The Hummer, on the other hand, costs a more fiscal $1.95 per mile to put on the road over an expected lifetime of 300,000 miles. That means the Hummer will last three times longer than a Prius and use less combined energy doing it.
THE LEFT: WRONG ABOUT EVERYTHING!
THE LEFT: IDIOTARIAN HYPOCRITICAL PHONIES.
THE LEFT: PROPOSING "ANTIDOTES" WHICH ARE WORSE THAN THE ILLNESS!
