Prius more environmentally damaging then Hummer?!
Came across this report from Connecticut State University and the writer claims that the Toyota Prius Hybrid is actually more damaging to the environment then the Hummer! To me though, the article sounds more like a yankee project to defame Toyota.
Here are some quotes from the article:
Full article : Prius outdoes Hummer in environmental damage.

Yes, a small diesel is any day better than most electric/hybrid cars. All the electric cars do is transfer the pollution from the car to the power generation plant.

Does the writer work for Hummer PR?
On a more sober note, the question not answered in that article is while this Sudbury plant has killed the environment around it, is it from just the 1000 tons of nickel produced for Toyota or does it also supply other companies? If its the latter, then the Prius need not have its 'environmentally damaging" associated with it tooth-and-nail.
