I too take exception to the quote in the GristMill post linked above drawn from the Washington Post. "There must be a way to reconcile mass car ownership with global warming"
Why must we do this?
Note the sarcasm from JMG:
If we want to consume it, make it, eat it, drive it, there must
be a way to do so. There must be a way we can keep living oblivious
lives without guilt that those lives depend on other people not being able to do those things. Right?
