There ain't no such thing as a zero emission car. Electric cars require
recharges at regular (and currently *frequent*) intervals. How is that
electricity generated? Currently, every industrial-scale source of
electricity of which I am aware causes pollution of one form or another.
And currently, so far as I know, one good volcanic eruption dumps more
"pollution" into the air than the entire industrialized world does in a good
year. And volcanoes have been around a lot longer than lbc's have.

IMHO, almost all government intervention into the lives of private
citizens is stupid. I have to breathe the same air that everyone else does,
so why doesn't Uncle Sam a.k.a. Big Brother trust me to make my car run as
clean as possible?
I now don my 5-layer reflectix armor, because I smell a flame war coming <g>.
