From the October issue of Harper’s magazine:
Chance a U.S. household that owns a Prius also owns an SUV: 1 in 3.
Makes sense: Instead of driving the SUV 100 percent of the time, just drive if half the time and drive the Prius the other half to offset the emissions. Voila!—You’ve helped the environment.
(Ridiculous? No more so than the justification for carbon offsets.)
