The Auto Prophet reports
that the UCSUSA (look here
for a previous entry on these guys) has started a blog advocating hybrids. I'm OK with that, but I think we need a litmus test for anyone jumping on the hybrid bandwagon. Say, for starters, that it's a requirement to sketch a block diagram of the Prius powertrain architecture before spouting-off as to why hybrids are so great. Yea, that'll filter out at least 98% of the bozos.
For what it's worth, I think there's a lot of merit to the hybrid concept, but I'm getting really frickin' sick of people who tout this technology without the slightest idea of why it's so great, and without the slightest clue as to the potential drawbacks.
