Man that was really bad. Do you have a link to that report? Is it the same one were they give the life cycle of the Prius at 100k and the hummer at 300k?

Lazarus -

And it doesn't account for the latest battery tech price drop for the Prius and Civic hybrids.

What made me laugh is how she is having a debate about what is "greener" from the inside of what is probably a 12000 square foot house.
How many prius fulls of electricity does it take to air conditon that place again?
And why are we seeing the other guy on the screen of her laptop? Just to show how up to date she is?

It gives me the impression that she has a low budget (can't fly the guy) or that she didn't want to spent time doing a quality job. However, in modern times, that (interview over the Web) is acceptable, imho. Besides, it saved fuel.

Looks like she's doing the interview with the lights off in the house. Not your typical American.

Yes I think it fit with the green image of the video. No transportation CO2

It only has a 11.9 gallon tank. May be she is filling up at 1/4 mark
