Hooray for hybrid cars.
Hybrid cars offer a no-brainer, readily available technology that can help tackle global warming. Yes, hybrids are not nearly the solution we need, but as the name implies it is a step between the past (oil based) and new (fuel cell) ways of powering the vehicles that our societies seem powerless to live without. Politicians are failing in their responsibility to tackle climate change. We have recently gone through elections in the U.K. where the environment didn't even register as a campaign issue. It is increasingly up to individuals to take the lead. But to argue and criticize such technology is to procrastinate and play into the hands of inaction. Hybrids are a step forward and should at least receive that recognition.
Editor's Note: Potential hybrid buyers should take a look at the "consumer guide" to them in this issue.
