SUVs....Gregg Easterbrook, as part of his ongoing scorched earth campaign against SUVs, summarizes the latest findings:

So the Godzilla SUV and its new cousin, the mega-pickup, emit more pollution than regular cars, burn more gasoline, and cause more road fatalities than would otherwise occur.

Well, sure, but look on the bright side: they also block your view if you get stuck behind one, take up too much space in parking lots, and cost a fortune. In the interest of fairness, shouldn't he have mentioned this stuff too?
