deflect criticism by defensively lashing out at ... you guessed it ... the fact that people drive cars.
First of I did not bring up a car into this you did.
So now you resort to the dishonest tactic of pretending that my SUV analogy was actually an attempt to introduce cars into this debate? What the fuck are you, a liar or an idiot? Do you know what an analogy is? Do you know what it's for? Do you know how analogies work, moron?
So you are saing that walking or whatever to a store but not using petrol and geting a taxi back is less energy efficient than geting a car to and back from the store? Perhaps in one single case but if 10 people walked to the store and got a cab back there would be energy savings.
Based on what? Your whiny ass? Taxis spend all their time cruising and idling, you fucking moron. They also tend to have V6 or V8 engines because they need to be roomy enough to accomodate a large group and their luggage. The idea that people can somehow be energy-efficient by using taxis (especially to go to a fucking private school, which means you have to use them every goddamned day) is the dumbest fucking idea that I've heard all week, and I saw Tony Snow performing his act.
If a big energygussling truck bringin 200kg of water would not be a vaste if it was filled with stuff to other people doing the same thing.
Obviously, the whole point about distance
completely escaped your infantile mind. You just love to assume that everything is close together, don't you?
And me living in a high city with good public transport, true. But if you wish you could move to a location where everything is withing easy reach.
Oh right, so your solution is for everyone in North America to move to Europe, where the cities are small and close together. Yet another brilliant and eminently practical idea from Faram. Where do you get this kind of genius? Did it come naturally to you, or have you been studying?
Also regarding to carpooling kids to shool, how am I supposed to know about your needs? In most caes that would be true.
I already pointed out to you that I'm using a special-needs private school, you fucking retard. It's not my fault if you're too stupid to understand what that means.
The point remains: you are being deliberately wasteful, and you don't need to be. Your attempt to refute this criticism by attacking the source with ignorant bullshit and idiotic claims about taxis somehow saving the world's gas supply is nothing more than a red-herring. I pointed out right at the beginning that you are confusing a subjective desire with a practical necessity, and you have completely
ignored this point throughout your entire stream of bullshit.
