03/25/2005 Entry: "Hybrid cars save fuel and the environment (DUUUUHHHH!!!) Yay!"

"Fuel cells and a hydrogen economy being still some way in the future, I recently traded in my Lexus 300 ES sedan for a six-cylinder Honda Accord hybrid. My new car performs as well or better than the previous one, but gives nearly double the mileage for a gallon of gas. Doing a rather average amount of driving in a year - 20,000 or 30,000 miles - I find that I am saving 500 to 1,000 gallons of gas. True, I had to pay a premium for the car (about $3,300 more than the equivalent gas-only model), and my trunk space is a bit reduced, to make room for the battery. But I will make up the extra cost in gas savings in a year or two, I have the convenience of filling my tank only every 500 miles and, more important, I can now drive while enjoying the feeling that I am being economical with fuel and adding half as many pollutants to the atmosphere."
Me and My Hybrid, by Oliver Sacks, MD, NYTimes Op/Ed, March 25, 2005

Mayerson leaps to her feet, bares her teeth in a savage grimace, shakes her fist at the heavens, and screams "DUUUHHH!!!"

...and then calms down.
