Speaking of wood-burning El Caminos...
While this truly boss ride was built in Finland (HT: Instapundit)and presumably was built just for the heck of it, it illustrates a good point. When government policies raise the price of oil too high, what do the intellectualistas think poor people are going to do? Spend money they don't have to buy hybrid cars? Invest the home-equity loans they can't get to completely re-build their houses' heating systems?
Why no, no they are not. Where I live in Eastern Pennsylvania, people are going to drive old trucks longer, and are going to count on their wood-burning stoves to provide more of their heat in the winter.
How's that going to help our air quality? I'm just asking?
