Jun 15th 2007 12:52PM I drive a Corvette Z-06. I usually get better than the 16/26 CAFE numbers on the window sticker; more like 27 to 28 on the highway. That super tall sixth gear means the engine is only turning over at 1800 rpm at 70 mph. Since it's an '03, I have a large trunk. The car is comfortable, quiet (unless I put my foot in it, then Porsches had just better get out of the way!) The great Bose sound system is the best.
Apr 8th 2007 8:37PM Al Gore has an enormous house and uses 20 times more energy than the average family, plus he flies around in his private jet all the time.
Purchasing credits is a crock. It doesn't reduce the pollution that he produces.
As for carbon dioxide, all living creature breath in oxygen and breath out CO2. Plants take in CO2, which they need to live, and emit oxygen. That's how the planet works.
Peta says the methane from animal waste is the greatest source. It's caused, according to PETA, by our raising animals for food. (Although I'm not a fan of PETA, this is an important observation.)
