Subject: RE: BS: Will Obama approve the XL pipeline?
". . . stop driving your fucking cars, SUVs, pickups so much and it will be less of a problem. Cut back on your electric toothbrushes, hair dryers, electric can openers, air conditioners—"
We own a 14 year old Toyota Corolla whose gas tank we fill with an eye-dropper, with about 31,000 miles on the clock, no SUVs or pickups. My wife's and my toothbrushes are of the hand-cranked variety, Barbara dries her hair with a towel, I don't have much hair to dry, we don't own an electric can opener, again using the hand-cranked variety, we don't own an air conditioner—"
Most of our friends are the kind of folks who walk a lot or take the bus, some of them own Toyota Priuses (hybrids), and one just bought a Smart Car. You plug it in. About the only thing that would tax the system even less would be a pair of roller skates.
Vote NO on the Keystone pipeline.
