    Poor Victor on not winning any battles in this eco-friendly war.

    Terrific. Prius driver vs. Vegan. Throw in Jef the Cyclist and they’ll clear the cafe.

    Guys like Victor make me proud to be a meat-eater; I’ve never heard anyone scream, “How dare you not eat bacon cheeseburgers!”

    Eat and let eat.

    Meh, manufacturing the materials for the cars batteries causes more damage to the environment than a Hummer over its entire life span. Also, if he instead uses a petroleum fuel based vehicle then he’s using an animal product.

    Right, better to let what you kill rot than actually use it.

    Erm… the industrial meat and dairy complex does a lot more damage to the environment than cars. I’m all for poking a little fun at people, but not eating meat and dairy is probably THE best thing one can do for the environment, in terms of personal changes.

    Well, what you suggest is all true, well and very good, but by far the BEST thing that one can do for the environment, especially as an over-consuming first worlder, is to refrain from breeding.

    It has always puzzled me that no-one mentions the fate facing domestic livestock, should the vegangelicals and the PETA crowd get their wish, and people everywhere stop consuming animals and animal by-products.
    .
    After all, it is not as if tens of billions of chickens, cattle and hogs can just be “returned to the wild” – they are utterly domesticated and would fall to starvation or predators in no time. Those few that managed to survived would become feral and have to be actively hunted.
    .
    Thus, the natural end result of a world-wide vegan lifestyle is the utter eradication of entire species and a crippling reduction to the planets biodiversity.
    .
    PETA – promoting animal genocide since 1980.

    Why must all you people go to such irrational extremes?

    @LobosSolos No actually, the supposed “studies” showing Hummers were cleaner than Priuses were based on made up numbers. If Toyota were really using the amount of resources these studies claimed, then they would be selling the Prius at a massive loss, and their annual reports wouldn’t be able to hide this.

    And I have a list, a loonnnggg list of those who shouldn’t…. Plus some for whom retroactive birth-control might be appropriate. Feel free to add to either if you want.

    People with electric cars kind of gloss over the fact that the power to recharge them is in all likelihood coming from a fossil fuel generating plant.

    Don’t worry, the polar bear should just evolve back into brown bears.
