I don't like how everyone has to have several
motorized vehicles. Motorcycles I don't mind but
many go way overboard with cars and trucks. If
everyone in the U.S. keeps this up, there will be
several times more cars and trucks than people in
this country. How can that be a good thing?
I'm not a tree hugger/environmentalist but bear in
mind that if every one of those 100 million cars in
North America spilled a single drop of oil on the
highway, that would equate 100 million drops of
motor oil flushing down the storm drains and into
all of our oceans, rivers, lakes, and aquifers. Do
you want motor oil in your tap/bath water?
1.) Luckily, waste oil is broken down by microorganisms
in the environment, so there is no need to worry about
cumulative contamination from the cleaner and cleaner
automobiles being produced today.
2.) If all 100 million drivers bought 5 cars each it would
cause no increase in the amount of oil dripped on the
highway unless each one could drive all five cars at once.
3.) The sky is not falling.
