Environment: ruin it all with Just a Prius ?

So you and your wife are going green? You can try a Prius and plug it in … to a coal-supply.

Your miles-per-gallon footprint will go down, but your miles-per-pound footprint will go up ( as in pounds of coal ).

And if coal is destructive as is gasoline, how is an electric car helpful? UNLESS, of course, you have a wind turbine on the top of your garage!
