I'll try something different: how about I take 10 seconds to look up your "facts" and disprove them. Ok here goes:

http://www.hybridcars.com/faq.html#battery :

"Battery toxicity is a concern, although today's hybrids use NiMH batteries, not the environmentally problematic rechargeable nickel cadmium. "Nickel metal hydride batteries are benign. They can be fully recycled," says Ron Cogan, editor of the Green Car Journal. Toyota and Honda say that they will recycle dead batteries and that disposal will pose no toxic hazards. Toyota puts a phone number on each battery, and they pay a $200 "bounty" for each battery to help ensure that it will be properly recycled."
It's not just made up stuff. I can back it up with url's [as well]:

What explains the "dead zone" around the nickel smelting plant in Canada?
What justifies the continent hopping manufacturing process of the Prius? - talk about "carbon footprint"!!!

You know I used to get a bit ticked at neanderthals who fight tooth and nail against any progressive change.. and come up with this ridiculous stuff. I don't know whether it's the creators or people who believe it are the worst.

But evolution driven by a changing environment (world oil supply and prices this time) works wonders.. They will just disappear..
