Save me in a Humvee but visit me on an electric scooter

Posted by steve on January 29, 2005

People rail about fuel- consuming unnecessarily big SUVs. I don’t.

I rail against the USE of them. Example. If I were lost in a desert and needed rescuing I would be so happy for a gas-guzzling Humvee – safe, well-equipped, powerful, etc to get me out of there. Regardless of my green-ness I would not like a guy on an electric powered scooter to be coming out for me.

On the other hand, if I am at a café down-town and want to meet a friend the scooter is OK. Not the Humvee. The difference is not in the technology but in its USE.
